Yields: 4 servings
Total Preparation Time: 45 minutes
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 sweet onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ jalapeno, seeded and diced
- 3 cups ½" diced butternut squash
- ½ bunch kale, stemmed and finely chopped

- 6 corn tortillas, cut into strips
- 2 cups prepared enchilada sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

TIP: Make your own enchilada sauce by blending ½ sweet onion, roughly chopped, 3 cloves garlic, 3 tbsp. chili powder, 1 tbsp. ground cumin, 1 tsp. salt, 2 cans (BPA free) tomato sauce in your blender and slowly add water until you reach your desired consistency. Freeze extra.
- Heat olive oil over medium heat in an oven proof skillet. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 5-8 minutes.
- Add garlic and jalapeno and cook for 1-2 minutes more or until fragrant.
- Add squash and cook, stirring occasionally until tender but still firm.
- Add kale, black beans, tortilla pieces and enchilada sauce.
- Stir to combine. Reduce heat to low and simmer until heated through.
- Sprinkle cheese, evenly over the top.
- Place under the broiler if desired for 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese and crisp the edges.
- Serve topped with cilantro and Greek yogurt.
