Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Ingredients:

1 lb. tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 medium white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1-2 jalapenos, stemmed (I used one for a slight kick)
extra virgin olive oil
2  Cups homemade or low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
1/2  Cup Mexican crema or creme fraiche (I substituted sour cream)
8  Cups vegetables, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (I used zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, sweet potato, cremini mushrooms, sweet peppers, and cauliflower)
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 small corn or 8 medium whole wheat tortillas
1-2 cups Mexican melting cheese (like Asadero, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, Cheddar, or a combination of the above)
white onion, thinly sliced for garnish
fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish

Directions:

To make the sauce, preheat oven broiler.

Place the tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeno on a large rimmed baking sheet.

Place directly under the broiler and broil for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through, until the tomatillos are soft and blotchy black in spots. Remove and reduce the oven heat to 400° F.

Puree tomatillo mixture until smooth in blender or food processor.

Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the puree and cook for several minutes until darker and thicker.

Add the broth and crema. Reduce heat to medium-low, partially cover, and simmer 30 minutes until reduced and thickened.

Once the sauce has thickened, season to taste with salt.

Meanwhile, to roast the vegetables spread the cubed vegetables on a large rimmed baking sheet (or two baking sheets).

Toss with enough olive oil to lightly coat. Season generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Roast in preheated 400° F oven for 20-30 minutes, until golden and tender.

Remove from the oven and set aside.

To assemble the enchiladas, warm tortillas in the microwave until pliable.

Spread a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Roll a portion of the roasted vegetables into each tortilla with a little cheese and place in the baking dish.

Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with several handfuls of cheese.

Bake in preheated 400° F oven for 10 minutes, until the enchiladas are heated through and the cheese is golden brown and bubbling.

Garnish with onion and cilantro and serve.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
