Some say red lentils have the best flavor. They’re a bit sweet and nutty. And unlike other lentils, these turn very soft when cooked, only needing to boil for 5-8 minutes before they’re ready to use in this quick take on enchiladas. You could even cook them a day or two in advance to save yourself a few extra minutes.
This enchilada casserole is one of our quick weeknight meals based on items currently featured in our May sales. Right now, at the Co-op you’ll find the red lentils, tortilla chips, enchilada sauce, chiles and salsa included in this recipe all on sale. Combined with some local spinach and scallions, the meal balances fresh flavors with the ease of an already prepared enchilada sauce. You can certainly add in additional vegetables to your liking.
