Friday Foodie Fix - Chickpea Enchilada's!

Today’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Chickpeas
As a flexitarian family we eat a lot of Chickpeas!  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! 

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.
