This is really quick to put together and gets a lot of love. Everything marked with an asterisk is optional. Just leave these ingredients out if you don’t have them on hand - it will be just as good. I add nutritional yeast because it gives an extra hit of umami flavour, and is a good source of B-vitamins and protein.
1 can Mexican red beans (or black, or kidney), drained
1 can corn (drained)
1 scallion, chopped (or 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion if you don’t have a green onion)
1 ½ tomatoes, chopped
*½ to 1 jalapeno, chopped (canned or fresh, amount according to taste)
*½ bell pepper, chopped
*2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
1 ½ tsp chili powder
*1 tsp chipotle sauce
1 cup grated cheddar
1/2 cup salsa
½ cup salsa (or a small can enchilada sauce)
½ cup grated cheddar
6 large tortillas
Spread the remaining ½ cup salsa on top, and sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese. You can use more salsa if you like - I was using our homemade salsa, which is like gold (if you've ever made salsa, you know... the chopping!), so I skimped a little.
Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes. Broil for a couple minutes at the end if the cheese doesn’t look sufficiently melty.
Use the remaining ½ tomato in your ...
1 ripe avocado, seeded, peeled
juice from ½ lime
½ tomato, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
couple drops hot sauce (to taste)
Mush up the avocado in a bowl with a fork, add remaining ingredients and stir. YUM.
Use the remaining ½ lime in your Corona :)
Serve with guac, salsa, sour cream if you desire, and Mexican beer!
I'd love to hear if you make this!
