Valentine’s Day 2018 has come and gone. If you’re nursing a broken heart, today’s post is a lighthearted take on a classic tortilla favorite: enchiladas. In this case, it’s an “Engaged Ex Enchilada”. Here is what you’ll need to make about six of them.
- Extra virgin oil
- A pair of cups of cheddar or shredded jack cheese
- A scrubbed and diced russet potato
- Two sixteen-ounce cans of green enchilada sauce
- Either one large or a pair of scrubbed and diced sweet potatoes
- Twelve corn tortillas
- A de-stemmed and thinly sliced bunch of kale or Swiss chard
- Salt and pepper
Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Grab a 9×13 inch baking dish and grease it down with the olive oil. Use a large pot to place the kale/chard and sweet potatoes in and then fill it with three cups of water. Place the pot over medium-high heat, cover it with an appropriate lid, and allow it to boil. Once it’s boiling, turn the heat down to medium-low and allow it to simmer until the potatoes are cooked through, about ten minutes or so. Remove the pot from the heat, drain, and then season with the pepper and salt.
Place the tortillas in the microwave for about thirty seconds until they become soft. Use a mixing bowl to pour the enchilada sauce into, dip one of the tortillas into it, and then remove, making sure to remove any leftover sauce. Place the tortilla on a flat surface and then add about two tablespoons of the kale-potato filling and a sizeable sprinkle of cheese to the tortilla center before rolling it up.
Making sure the seam side is facing down, place the tortilla into the pan you originally prepared and repeat the previous steps with the rest of them. Make sure to leave about half a cup of cheese to top the tortillas. When ready, pour the sauce over the rolled tortillas you placed in the pan and top with the cheese. Bake them for at least thirty minutes or until the cheese has begun to bubble.
You’re ready to serve!
