Recipe Ingredients for Enchiladas

12 corn tortillas
8 oz low fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1168)

Filling:
2 tbsp soybean oil (4044)
1 medium onion, diced
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
15 oz canned black-eyed peas, drained (94504)

Sauce:
15 oz crushed tomatoes (97130)
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or 1/2 tsp)

Recipe Directions for Enchiladas

  1. In a medium saucepan, cook onion in oil over medium-high heat until onions are transparent, with slightly browned edges, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add chili power, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes. Sauté for one minute, stirring constantly to prevent spices from burning. Add peas. Cook on medium-low heat for about 15 minutes. If peas seem dry, add 1-2 tablespoons at a time.

  3. Remove from heat. Mash mixture a few times with a potato masher or large fork until slightly lumpy.

  4. For the sauce**, stir all ingredients together. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of water at a time to desired thinness.

  5. Heat tortillas in skillet, flipping every few seconds, until warmed and pliable.

  6. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of pea mixture and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll each tortilla and place seam down in a sprayed 13 x 9 baking dish. Spoon sauce over tortillas and top with remaining cheese.

  7. Bake 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and enchiladas are thoroughly heated.

  8. **May substitute 2 cups salsa.
