We loved this recipe! The corn in the enchiladas adds such a nice change to your “typical” enchilada recipe. One thing I will say is you are not expecting the corn yet the sweetness from the corn paired with the spiciness from the enchilada sauce is a nice combination.
- (8) 6-inch corn tortillas
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 5 scallions, white and light green parts, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 2 medium ears) $
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- Salt (Just a few dashes or leave it out)
- 2 cups grated pepper Jack or cheddar (I used cheddar)
- 1 10-oz. can enchilada sauce (I used Homemade Enchilada Sauce)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Stack tortillas, wrap in foil and bake until softened, 8 to 10 minutes.
- While tortillas are baking, oil a 7-by-11-inch glass baking dish. Warm 1 Tbsp. oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions and garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in corn and milk and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt.
- Remove tortillas from foil. Set aside 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of corn mixture in center of a tortilla. Sprinkle with a heaping tablespoon of cheese. Roll up tortilla and set in dish, seam side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas, overlapping them slightly. Pour enchilada sauce over tortillas and sprinkle with reserved 1/2 cup cheese. Bake until bubbling, about 20 minutes.
