Beef & Bean Enchiladas
To prepare sauce: Place tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapeno in a food processor; pulse until coarsely pureed. Transfer to a large saucepan. Add tomatoes and broth to the pan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Set aside.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
To prepare filling: Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef, mushrooms, cumin and salt; cook, stirring and breaking up the beef with a spoon, until the beef is no longer pink and most of the liquid from the mushrooms is gone, about 5 minutes. Add beans and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.
Spread 1/2 cup of the sauce in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Dip a tortilla in the remaining sauce to moisten it and place on a clean cutting board. Spread about 1/4 cup of the filling down the middle of the tortilla and roll it up into a cigar shape. Place seam-side down in the prepared baking dish. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling, placing the enchiladas snugly next to each other to make a single layer. Top the enchiladas with the remaining sauce and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake until the enchiladas are hot and the cheese is beginning to brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the sauce for up to 5 days.
Tip: Tomatillos are tart, plum-size fruits that look like small, husk-covered green tomatoes. Find them in the produce section near the tomatoes. Remove outer husks and rinse well before using.
