Ingredients

Filling

  • 1 tbsp. Vegetable oil, optional
  • 1/2 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Corn, kernels
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable stock
  • 2 Poblano peppers, roasted, peeled, cut into strips
  • 1 cup Pinto beans, canned

Almond Crema

  • 1/2 cup Almonds raw
  • 1/4 cup Soy milk unsweetened
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Lemon juice

Garnish

  • 12 tortillas
  • 3 cups Tomatillo salsa (see note)
  • 1/2 Onion sliced into paper thin rings
  • 1 tbsp. Cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • To make the filling: heat 1 tbsp. of oil in a large sauté pan to medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add onions and sauté for 3 - 4 minutes, or until almost the onions are tender and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Add corn and 1/4 cup of vegetable stock. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the corn is tender. Add poblano pepper and beans and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To make the almond crema: place all ingredients in the blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • To assemble: Warm corn tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds or in the oven at 350F on a sheet tray for 5 min. Just enough so that the tortillas are soft enough to be rolled.
  • Spread 2-3 tbsp. of the tomatillo sauce on the bottom of a 9 x13 baking dish Place 1 tbsp. of filling on each tortilla. Roll and place on baking dish. Continue this process until you have used up all the tortillas and the entire filling.
  • Pour the rest of the tomatillo sauce on top of the enchiladas and bake in oven for 5 – 10 min. or until the enchiladas are warm. Remove from the oven and drizzle almond crema on top.
  • Garnish with onion slices and chopped cilantro.

Notes

To make this a quick weeknight dinner you can buy the sauce already made and skip the roasting and peeling of the poblano peppers. You can find a recipe for a tomatillo salsa here.
