    joop's Note:

    I made Tamales De Pollo Con Chile Verde- Green Chile Chicken Tamales spicy Chicken tamales one Christmas and my family inhaled them. The sauce was just so crazy great it makes you crave more. As a vegan and a person very into health, I decided to try to work that sauce into a healthy, vegan enchilada version and the result is a crazy addictive concoction that disappears in no time. For ease, I make this as a layered casserole but traditionalists can roll 'em up.

    Enchilada Filling

    Fast Enchilada Sauce


    1. 1
      Put the tomatillos and peppers in a pan under the broiler for 7 minutes or until they char. Turn them and keep them in for 5 more minutes.
    2. 2
      Empty the tomatillos and peppers (and any collected drippings from the pan you broiled them on) into a food processor with garlic cloves and process until very smooth.
    3. 3
      Put the vegetable blend into a large saucepan with the broth and add lentils. Cover and cook until lentils are tender (15 minutes with red or yellow lentils, 20-25 for green, french or black) and turn off the heat.
    4. 4
      While that cooks, drain your beans, put them in a bowl and partly mash them (just take a large slotted spoon and crunch down on them sporadically)
    5. 5
      Add the beans, cilantro and nutritional yeast into the cooked lentil mix and stir together.
    6. 6
      While that settles, make the enchilada sauce by melting together the flour and margarine to make a roux, then whisking in broth, tomato paste and chili powder. Stirring constantly, cook over medium/high heat until thick and bubbly. Add a dash of cayenne or chipotle to taste if you like it a little hotter.
    7. 7
      You can make this casserole style (layering the tortillas with the filling and sauce) or traditional roll-up style.
    8. 8
      Coat the bottom of your pan with a 1/2 c of the enchilada sauce, then spoon the filling into tortillas and roll them, placing them closely in the pan, then top with enchilada sauce for traditional rolled enchiladas.
    9. 9
      Coat the bottom of the pan with 1/2 c of the sauce, then layer tortillas, filling, sauce, tortillas, filling, sauce, tortillas, sauce if making casserole style.
    10. 10
      If you like a cheesy top, sprinkle on Daiya or nutritional yeast then cover the top of the casserole with foil. In honesty, I can only recommend Daiya if you want a vegan cheese. Every other vegan cheese I've tried tastes gruesome. The recipe is amazingly flavorful without any cheese, but if you must, use Daiya.
    11. 11
      Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, then remove the foil if you've topped it with Daiya for the final 10 minutes. Without cheese, you can keep foil on the whole time.

      This was very scrumptious! I was blown away! I threw in a red pepper and onions to roast, had wonderful flavor and they were very filing. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper.
