enchilada bake

I apologize for the lack of posts lately, sometimes life is a little frantic. I haven’t been cooking as much lately, but my husband sure has and he came up with something so delicious the other night! When we lived in Cleveland, we picked up a magazine about going vegan and it had life changing, awesome recipes. One of which is an enchilada bake. It is soooooooooo good, but it is definitely time consuming. So Preston decided to make his own “enchilada bake” with a few different ingredients and save about 30 min. Of cooking time so we could have dinner at a decent hour!
Preston used leftover garbanzos from falafel night and cooked them with onions, flour and veggie broth. While that was simmering, he prepared the “taco filling”. The taco filling we use is so good we buy it in bulk from Amazon. It’s called “Fantastic World Foods” and it tastes just like real taco meat! It is also really fast to prepare.
After the beans and meat were ready, he lined a dish with corn tortillas, enchilada sauce, bean medley and taco meat. Keep layering until the dish is full, then cover and put in the oven for 20 min. At 400. After the 20 min, you pull it, crumble fritos on top and put it back in the oven for 10 min.
This casserole is so good, non vegans ask for the recipe! They always think the meat is real and the fritos definitely help give it some crunch!
