Enchiladas for One


Phew, things are getting busy over at my house this month. Our roommates are out of the country, exploring England and France while Cobalt and I add hours to our jobs and fiddle with our broken dishwasher. Making legitimate meals hasn’t been happening regularly. I think I’ve only made one the whole week? Tonight we opted to buy frozen Digiorno Pizza (not a sponsor) because A) We all made pizza last week from scratch and B) Digiorno doesn’t taste half bad for frozen pizza. Beats paying too much for Delivery…

Speaking of quick meals, remember when I posted a recipe for Enchiladas but it was for 4-6 people?

Well, today I’m featuring a Food for One version. If you feel like sharing, or aren’t as hungry as you thought, this dish could serve two ;-) Or you could make them into two small casserole dishes to add a fun “personal casserole” touch to it.

The great thing about this recipe is you might already have at least half of these ingredients in your cupboard/fridge!

Enchiladas for One
  1. 2 tortillas
  2. 1 can black beans
  3. 1/2 tomato, diced
  4. 2 TBS minced onion
  5. 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  1. Spray the inside of an oven safe bowl with cooking oil. Spoon a couple spoonfuls of beans at the bottom.
  2. Tear a tortilla and lay it over the beans. Spoon a few more beans on top along with a sprinkle of onion, tomato and cheese.
  3. Layer this one more time, ending with cheese and tomatoes.
  4. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes until bubbly.
  5. (I baked mine in my toaster oven for a quicker dinner and to prevent the kitchen from getting too hot.)

One thought on “Enchiladas for One

  1. Enchiladas are one of my favorites! This is a great recipe and I can say this because my family and I consistently make Mexican dishes. I am very excited to try this recipe because of our love for tortillas, beans, and cheese. The only difference between this recipe and the one we will be using is that it will be enchiladas for about 25. This includes my abuelos, tios, primos, hermanos, and padres. We always cook during the holidays and make some kind of Mexican dish, weather that is tamales, enchiladas, tacos, or chile rellanos. One thing I would recommend with these delicious enchiladas for a desert are palletas. Its a delicious desert on a stick. A paletta is a type of popsicle made of fresh fruit and juice that gets frozen over night. you can pretty much find these in any grocery store in the frozen isle next to all the popsicles. Another thing i would recommend would be putting hot sauce on the enchiladas. There are many hot sauces to try, I would personally recommend any form of Tabasco or Cholula. The last thing i like to add when making enchiladas is Chicken. Throwing some torn up chicken breast on top or in the enchiladas makes the dish much chewier and tastier. Having grown up in a Mexican family most of this stuff is normal for me, but I highly encourage and recommend this dish to anyone. Over all enchiladas are one of my family and I’s favorite dishes.
