This recipe uses refried beans together with cheese, salsa, black olives, onion and coriander. The dish is baked in the oven until the cheese is bubbly. Enchiladas make a great family or party dish/ Serve with more salsa or guacamole.
Preparation time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 35 minutes, Serves: 8
9 (6 inch) flour tortillas
2 cups refried beans
4 cups salsa or enchilada sauce
3 cups cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese (or half of each)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup cilantro (coriander)
Salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour one cup of salsa into a 9 x 12 inch pan. Lay 3 tortillas on the bottom of the pan to cover completely (you will have to cut one tortilla into smaller pieces).
Top with one cup of refried beans, then one cup of chese, 1/4 cup onion, 1/4 cup black olives and 1/4 cup cilantro. Pout 1 cup of the salsa evenly over the ingredients and top with 1 more cup of the cheese.
Repeat with one more layer of 3 tortillas, 1 cup of refried beans, 1 cup cheese, 1/4 cup onion, 1/4 cup black olives, 1/4 cup coriander, 1 cup of salsa and 1 cup of cheese.
Finish with 3 more tortillas topped by 1 cup of salsa and 1 cup of cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10 to 15 more minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and turns light brown.
