The cooking procedure of vegetarian enchiladas

To prepare these vegetarian enchiladas, boil water in a pot and add whole corn kernels until they’re cooked through. Once done, drain them and let them cool off. Put enough water to cover the tomatoes and cook them until soft. Drain and let them cool off too.

At this time, you can preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Pinch out a generous tablespoon of cheese and set it aside to use in one enchilada. Divide the remaining cheese between all of your tortillas and add 1 tablespoon of onions inside each one. With the fillings in place, roll them up and set them aside.

Now put a large pot over medium heat with 1/4 cup of water. Add your enchiladas carefully and let them cook for about 2 minutes on each side. When done, remove them from the pan and let them cool on a plate covered with aluminum foil.

Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large pan and cook the onions and bell pepper until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and corn kernels and cook for another 5-8 minutes. If you’re using black beans, add them at this time and let them heat through.

For the sauce: combine chili powder, oregano, cumin, and a cup of water. Stir until all the ingredients are well blended and add to the pan with your vegetables. Cook for a few minutes more before removing from heat.
