Vegetarian Dish: Avocado Enchiladas

It’s not often we eat a meal that is COMPLETELY meat free. We are a meat and potato kind of family. So its kind of a special thing when Mamma makes a meat free meal. This time around I made some Cheesy Avocado Enchiladas and paired it with some Easy Spanish Rice, Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips and Guacamole.

Prep Time: Approx. 30-45 minutes ~~ Cook Time: 25-35 Minutes

Ingredients:

8 Avocado

1/2 Red Onion

1 Cup Cilantro

Juice of 1 Lime

1 Jalepeno

2-4 Cloves of Garlic

3/4 Tsp. Salt

20 Corn Tortillas

2 Cans Enchilada Sauce ( or 4 over flowing Cups of Green Chili)

1/2 Cup Canola Oil or Oil of preference for frying

1Lb. Monty Jack or Spanish Style Cheese

Directions:

Chop Avocado, Onion, Pepper, Cilantro. Toss together. Set aside.

Heat oil in frying pan, and fry tortillas until LIGHTLY golden. DO NOT fry completely because you still need them to be mold-able.

Cover half of baking dish with Sauce or Green Chili. And put about 1/4 Cup of Sauce on dish. Dip tortillas on sauce, spoon avocado filling and roll. Place into baking dish.

Do this with all remaining filling, cover with remaining sauce or chili and than top with cheese.

Cover and Bake in oven at 400Ā° for 25-35 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and browning. DSC05145

I had left over filling because I only made about 3/4 of the what the recipe actually made. So I whipped up some Guacamole! Delicious!DSC05138

Easy Spanish Rice Side Dish:

Prep Time: Approx 15 Minutes ~~~ Cook Time 20-30 Minutes

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. Oil

1/4 Onion Chopped

1/12 Cups Rice

3 Cloves Garlic

2 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth ( or 3 Chick Flavor Bouillon Cubes)DSC05140

1 Can Tomato Sauce

Parsley (optional)

Directions:

Heat oil in pan. Add in Onion and Rice and cook until the onion is tender and rice is browned slightly.

Add in broth carefully and than tomato sauce. Bring to boil.

Simmer for 20-30 minutes

For Tortilla Chips just simply cut corn tortillas into 4 Quarters (like picture) I just use my pizza cutter.

Heat oil in pan and fry until golden brown.

Set on towel to drain excess oil and sprinkle with salt right away.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did! And please share this delightful dish with your friends!

Cheers!
