I must say I was dubious when it said on the reviews (Netmums I think?) how popular this dish is. But it was unbelievably so!! shock Dss inhaled it for lunch today and wanted more. Luckily I had made some for dp who works nights. Seen as he is unaware I gave the extra to dss wink

So here it is chickpea Enchiladas

1 tin Chickpeas
1 tin Tomato toms chopped 1 tbs tom puree 1 tbs oil 1 onion chopped
1 tsp garlic puree or 1 clove crushed 1 carrot grated
1 Pack Tortillas White sauce or creme fraiche or soured cream
Grated cheese

I also added bit salt, pepper and smoked paprika to ours. You can add what you want.

Soften onion in oil. Add Toms, chickpeas, tom puree, carrot, garlic and seasoning of choice. Simmer 10 mins til thickened. Roll mixture into tortillas (i used 6) Top with white sauce or other. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 180c for 10 to 15 mins until bubbling. Then inhale grin Well, I did wink

Sounds amazing! Tomorrow nights tea I think

OohThatsMyTractor Tue 09-Aug-11 14:37:55

That sounds delicious and has solved my quandry about what to cook for supper tonight! Thank you for the recommendation CuriousMama

Mmm, does sound nice. I have done similar many times right up to the bit where you put it in the over. Never done that and I bet it makes it lovely.

Curiousmama Tue 09-Aug-11 14:41:42

Ỳes it's lush. I think it's so popular with the dcs because of the sweetness of the carrot and tomatoes?

Just have to think what to give dp now confused wink

Curiousmama Tue 09-Aug-11 14:42:21

oh heck how did that happen? Was supposed to be Yes it's lush. Do you think mentioning Netmums did it? wink

How much white sauce? Just a bit, or lots?

Curiousmama Wed 10-Aug-11 14:32:28

Enough to cover the enchiladas or whatever you fancy?

Curiousmama Wed 10-Aug-11 14:32:49

Dss asked for it again today but need to get chickpeas grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Wed 10-Aug-11 15:19:26

Sounds delicious. What's white sauce though? <thicko>

MindyMacready Wed 10-Aug-11 15:23:26

It needs some meat and heat (spice)!

Blurgh to tinned tomatoes though!

I do this one -

buy a packet of ready chopped sweet potato and butternut squash and cook it briefly in the microwave;
meanwhile fry onions and garlic and add a bit of turmeric, lots of paprika and some chilli flakes or fresh chilli and lots of coriander;
mix the two together and then mash it a bit before adding a drained tin of chickpeas and some baby spinach leaves;
fill and roll tortillas and put in a baking tray;
top with lots of grated cheese and bake until golden.
Eat with a homemade salsa and/or spiced rice /salad.

sounds good - will give it a whirl

Curiousmama Wed 10-Aug-11 19:55:49

Made it again tonight as dcs wanted some.

White sauce is just bechamel LadyClarice. Very easy to make.

Like I said you can add spice if you want. Dp and I would have it spicy. You really don't need meat and we're all meat lovers.

Nothing wrong with tinned toms now and again Remus. The flavours all blend together. I think this is more a dish that can always be available to do you don't always have fresh spinach and butternut squash around grin

LemonDifficult Wed 10-Aug-11 19:59:43

Both of these sound great. Remus - is that loads of fresh coriander or coriander seed?

I just hate tinned tomatoes. Wish I did like them but I just can't do it!

Fresh coriander, Lemon. Oh and you've reminded me that I normally squeeze some lemon juice in too. smile

Curiousmama Wed 10-Aug-11 20:26:02

I adore fresh coriander smile Am cooking for friends soon may these although one friend won't eat either, may cook him sausage and chips? wink

Curiousmama Wed 10-Aug-11 20:27:14

meant may do these!

lisalisa Wed 10-Aug-11 20:29:11

sounds delicious curious mama thanks so much

BikeRunSki Wed 10-Aug-11 20:31:30

I do something similar with kidney beans, always goes down well. DS (3 next month) like it spicier than DH (36, lightweight).

Fillybuster Wed 10-Aug-11 20:32:08

Sounds fab - I always have chickpeas, tinned toms, tortillas and creme fraiche in the house.....will give this a whirl smile

Curiousmama Wed 10-Aug-11 20:33:19

grin at your ds BRS

Yes Filly we always have these in too or else the local shop stocks all the ingredients.

cjbartlett Wed 10-Aug-11 20:35:33

Damn my dcs
They both hate wraps hmm something to do with the texture

Do you like qaesadillas too? That's another of our quick and easy favourites:

Put grated cheese, chopped pepper, chilli, onion, coriander, whatever on a tortilla and put another tortilla on top. Fry on both sides until golden. We like them with a salsa made of red onion, red pepper, mango, coriander, chilli and lime juice, which is a v good way of getting vitamin C into salad-refusing dd2!
