Creamy Pumpkin and Chicken Enchiliadas

Just when you thought enchiladas couldn’t get any better, we added pumpkin!

Ingredients

Pumpkin Enchilada Sauce:

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat add the olive oil, onion, bell pepper, and cubed pumpkin. Cook until the vegetables start to soften, 6-8 minutes. Add the jalapeno and garlic and cook another minute. Remove from the heat and stir in your chicken. Add salt and pepper to taste (don’t be shy here, vegetables need salt).
  2. To make the enchilada sauce, which together all of the ingredients until smooth.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spread a cup of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9 inch by 13 inch baking dish. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds so that they are easier to work with. Place a 1/4 cup of the vegetable and chicken mixture in each tortilla and roll. Place the rolled tortilla seam side down in the pan and repeat until your pan is full.
  4. Cover the top of all of the rolled enchiladas with your remaining enchilada sauce. Use the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly over the tops. Cover the top with the grated cheese. Bake until the edges start to bubble and the cheese melts, about 25 minutes.
  5. Garnish with chopped cilantro and green onion and serve hot.
