Bean, Cheese, and Corn Enchiladas

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by strawberrybird

These yummy enchiladas can be a little messy to prepare, but are well worth it. They can be made ahead and stored by covering with saran wrap and placing in the refigerator. They make great leftovers.

I used corn tortillas instead of flour because I didn't have any (too lazy to make homemade flour tortillas). I did have some frozen homemade enchilada sauce that was terrific (thanks to a Zaar recipe). Instead of folding this like an enchilada I left my tortillas as a layer in the pan after coating them in enchilada sauce and continued in layers. Just to kick it up a knotch as Emeril would say, I definitely used way more green chilies (7 ounces instead of 4), and I used half monterey jack and half habanero cheddar because I wanted to make sure it was flavorful and cleared my nostrils. This was very good, and I liked that it had ingredients I'd normally have on hand. Next time I make this, I want to use homemade refried beans...that's another day!
