Green Chile, Black Beans, and Sweet Corn Enchiladas

No-meat enchiladas with creamy cheese sauce and a few combined colorful ingredients layered within fresh corn tortillas are a fun and easy go-to crowd pleaser for your next Mexican style fiesta!

Fresh sweet corn adds a nice touch when in season but from east to west, Green Chile, Black Beans, and Sweet Corn Enchiladas can be enjoyed anytime simply switching out using frozen sweet corn.

Serve alongside some Tomatillo Salsa,  a bowl of fresh made guacamole and a little Pico de Gallo leaving just the rev of the blender while whipping up those Margaritas. Ole!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease casserole dish with oil

  13. Scoop one scant ladle of the sauce then lightly spread it across the bottom of the casserole dish
  14. To the remaining sauce in the pan, stir in three-quarters of the black beans and corn, reserving some to scatter across the top for the finish
  15. Evenly spoon the creamy black bean and corn mixture between tortillas, top with a couple sprinkles of the cheese, roll the filled tortilla then set on the bottom of the casserole dish lining them up next to each other and stacking if using a smaller casserole dish

  17. Sprinkle across the shredded cheeses
  18. Scatter over the reserved black beans and corn
