RED CHILE ENCHILADAS
3 tbsp. red chile powder
4 tbsp. flour
Half-blender full of water
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
Blend all ingredients til well mixed. Add another half blender of
water (the blender will be full now) and blend again. Pour into
large skillet or saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer
until thickened, about 30 to 45 minutes, stirring frequently. If necessary
you can add cornstarch to thicken it up some more. It should be kind
To assemble the enchiladas, take corn tortillas (blue corn tortillas
if you can find them) and steam them in the microwave so they are softer.
For a casserole, ladle some sauce into the bottom of the dish, then layer
tortillas, black beans, and sauce until the dish is full or you run out.
Again, monterrey jack cheese would be great on these if you can get it
fatfree. The beans don't usually go in them but since I don't use cheese
they add a nice taste and texture. Heat up the casserole until warmed
through or cheese is melted.
