Meal Solutions, Dinner
2 cups Palouse Brand Brown Lentils, prepared
2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into ½ inch chunks
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium red onion, diced
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 cup jarred roasted red peppers, drained and finely chopped
½ cup oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes, drained and finely chopped
2 cups baby spinach, slightly chopped
2 ½ cups Enchilada Sauce
1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
½ tsp. ground chipotle chili pepper
1 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. fine sea salt
6 medium to large soft tortillas
Lightly grease a 9x12 baking dish and set aside.
Place the diced sweet potatoes and lentils in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes until fork tender. Drain and set aside.
In a large skillet stir together oil, onion, and garlic. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until the onion softens. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Add the chopped roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, cooked and drained sweet potatoes, and lentils.
Add the spinach. Cook for 3-5 minutes over medium-high heat until spinach is wilted.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir ⅓ cup of Enchilada sauce into the skillet. Add the lime juice, powder chipotle chili pepper, cumin, and salt.
Place ¾ cup Enchilada sauce in the bottom of your baking dish and spread it evenly.
Fill each tortilla shell with ¾ cup of the filling from your skillet onto each tortilla. Roll the tortilla shells and place them seam-side down in the baking dish, tucking them tightly together.
Spread all remaining Enchilada sauce on top of the rolled tortillas until they are completely covered in sauce.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until the enchiladas are completely heated through.
Garnish with sliced black olives, chopped cilantro, avocado, or green onions.
