Chickpea Enchilada's

Today I am participating in the Ultimate Recipe Challenge.  This weeks challenge is Beans and Lentils!  As a flexitarian family we eat a lot of beans and lentils so this is no challenge to me!  The hard part was to choose a favorite recipe.  Today I chose My Chickpea Enchilada's!  This recipe is so easy make and kids love it!  So here is the original post.

My family loves this recipe!  It is so easy!  And of course I just use what I have on hand.  I used my homemade tortilla's, and homemade salsa.

2 cups                chickpeas(soaked and cooked as recommended)or you can use cooked chicken or beef leftovers!
1 cup                  salsa
1/2 cup               cottage cheese
Optional add ins  onion, peppers, mushrooms, corn, black beans, garlic, spices. what ever you have on hand or like!
1 1/2 cups           salsa
3/4 cup              shredded cheese
6                         tortilla's
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mash chickpeas, mix with salsa, cheese, and any add ins.
  3. Roll even amounts of the mixture in the tortillas. Arrange in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with salsa sauce and 3/4 cup shredded cheese.
  4. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving. Best served with sour cream, guacamole, and a nice garden salad.
