Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas

What you need: 

1 yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 medium sweet potatoes or yams, cooked and diced
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1-10 jalapenos, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon chile powder
8 corn tortillas

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a baking dish with nonstick spray. Water saute the onions, and after 3 minutes add garlic.
2. After onions and garlic are softened, add everything else except tortillas and cook down until the consistency is rather thick.
3. Heat the tortillas on a dry griddle, or microwave for a minute to soften (keeps them from tearing when rolled).
4. Spoon filling on tortilla in an off-center strip, and roll. Smear a bit of filling on the inside edge to seal.
5. Place on prepared baking dish, seam side down, and bake for about 30 minutes.
Serve with salsa verde.'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

is nobody else bothered by the fact that the recipe doesn't say how long to bake them and at what temperature? It just stops with "put them on a baking sheet"...maybe I'm just assuming you need to bake them, maybe this person just wants you to serve them on a baking sheet...?

hmmmmm the baking and temp must have gotten lost when they overhauled vegweb's recipes a few months ago... i would say, bake them at 350F for 30 minutes

i was about to submit a recipe and found this... which is basically almost the same as my "creation" that i fashioned after a favorite from a mexican-ish restaurant in seattle.

i generally just use sweet potatoes or yams, black beans, garlic, cumin, and then some canned diced or stewed tomatoes.  so simple and so good!

this is a great recipe, i did switch it up tho. i added diced red bell peppers to the filling as well as adobo, cayenne pepper and lime juice. instead of corn, i used whole grain tortillias, then covered it all in a roasted tomato salsa and vegan cheese. truly satisfying for someone who isnt even vegan or vegetarian. truly a wonderful meal.  ;)

Yum!! I'm really digging black beans/sweet potato combos. I almost doubled the spices, and it still lacked some punch, so next time I'll probably used a tablespoon of each. I used 3 chipotles + a tablespoon of adobo sauce instead of jalapenos, and I think I'll use 5 next time. I think 2 sweet potatoes is too much for 1 can of beans, so I added an extra can.  I used enchilada sauce and layered the dish like lasagna: sauce, tortillas, bean mixture, shredded Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet cheese, and so on until it was done. Then I baked it, covered, in a 375-degree oven for 30 minutes, and broiled it uncovered for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. I served it with spanish rice and topped it with vegan sour cream. Very tasty!

Holy Yum thats good! I made these tonight with a slight variation. I rolled them up and put them in a dish and poured a can of crushed tomato and  green chili's over it . Then I baked it. I had more mix then space in the dish so I just put the remainder between two tortilla and froze it.
