We had this for Thanksgiving and it was very tasty and easy to make. We don't have a microwave, if you do, you can soften the squash quicker.

This is a great starter recipe. I was cleaning out the fridge earlier this week, and there was a flank steak in the freezer. So I added mushrooms, bok choy, carrots, celery and some green onions. I had 1/2 an onion so I used that and a red bell pepper instead of the 2 green peppers. Then I finished it off w/ the last bundle of whole wheat soba noodles instead of rice.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Prep Time: 1 Hour Cook Time: 45 Minutes Ready In: 1 Hour 45 Minutes
Yields: 12 servings at 1 enchilada each
Actual Yield for us: 6 servings

"Vegetarian potato and pinto bean enchiladas smothered in tomatillo salsa and queso fresco. Make it as spicy as you like with the addition of jalapenos to either, or both, sauce and filling."

INGREDIENTS:
1 pound potatoes, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 pound fresh tomatillos, husks removed
1 large onion, chopped
1 bunch fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped, divided
2 (12 ounce) packages corn tortilla
1 (15.5 ounce) can pinto beans, drained
1 (12 ounce) package queso fresco

NOTES: I didn't feel like making the tomatillo salsa, so I bought a jar of salsa verde and used that instead. If you do this, simply eliminate the tomatillos, onion and 1/2 of the cilantro from the ingredients list and skip step 2. Queso Fresco is a slightly salty, firm Spanish cheese.

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). In a bowl, toss diced potatoes together with cumin, chili powder, salt, and ketchup, and place in an oiled baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tender. (Mine took about 10 min. longer than this)
2. Meanwhile, boil tomatillos and chopped onion in water to cover for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, puree with half of the cilantro until smooth.
3. Mix potatoes together with pinto beans, 1/2 cheese, and 1/2 cilantro. Fill tortillas with potato mixture, and roll up. Place seam side down in an oiled 9x13 inch baking dish. Spoon tomatillo sauce over enchiladas, and spread remaining cheese over sauce. Bake for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

Thai- Leftovers Style

So, we had a frozen chicken breast and a bunch of random vegetables that needed to be used up so I decided to see what I could make. It tasted good, so I've written it down for next time.

1 boneless skinless chicken breast, thawed and cut in small cubes
Approx. 7 baby carrots, cut into matchsticks
Approx. 2 celery sticks, cut into 1" matchsticks
Approx. 3/4 cup of frozen carrots
1/2 of a red onion, cut in slices
1 bunch fresh chives
1/2 can of light coconut milk
1 Tbs of chili garlic paste (we like heat, you may adjust to taste)
1/4 cup of chicken broth
1/2 Tbs of garlic
1/2 Tbs of ginger

In a wok over medium heat, heat some vegetable oil and then toss in the onions and garlic. Once those start to soften, toss in the carrots and celery. Give those about 7 minutes and then toss in the chicken. While they are cooking, mix together the broth, coconut milk, ginger and chili garlic paste. You want it to be a little thin, so you may need to add a bit more coconut milk or broth. Once the chicken is cooked through, add the sauce, stir to coat and let cook for 1 more minute before taking off the heat. Serve with rice, makes 3 servings.
