  • 2 tablespoon oil divided
  • 10 small corn tortillas cut into strips
  • ½ large red onion diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small butternut squash peeled and cut into ½" cubes
  • 1 ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup corn frozen or canned
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 10 ounces enchiladas sauce
  • 4 large kale leaves chopped small
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a few springs of cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeño diced
  • 2 green onions diced
  • 1 avocado


  • In a large cast-iron skillet heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add tortilla strips and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes, until lightly crispy and browned. Transfer to a paper towel.
  • Add the remaining oil and sauté onions for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are translucent and fragrant. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 more seconds. 
  • Add the butternut squash, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and salt. Stir to coat then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook until the squash is tender. About 5 minutes.
  • Add the black beans, corn, tomatoes, enchiladas sauce, and kale. Cook for an additional 3 minutes until kale is wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in corn tortillas and bring to a simmer, simmering for about 10 minutes until the liquid has boiled down. Remove enchiladas from heat and let set up 10 additional minutes before serving.
  • Top with jalapeño, cilantro, and green onions.
