Enchilada is a “flour or corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a savoury sauce.”
Step 1: Preheat the oven at 175 degrees C (350 degrees F). Lightly grease a 9x 13-inch baking dish.
Step 2: In a large Skillet, heat oil to cook and stir green pepper, onion and garlic until softens. Stir the beans, tomato, picante sauce, chili powder, cumin and red pepper flakes and bring them to a boil.
Step 3: Let the mixture simmer at low heat until it thickens. After that, fold in rice and 1 cup cheddar cheese and cook for about 5 minutes.
Step 4: Put ½ cups of bean mixture on each tortilla in the centre and fold the sides and roll up. Place each piece in the baking dish. Spoon salsa over each tortilla and cover with aluminium foil.
Step 5: Bake in preheated oven. Once cooked, sprinkle with cilantro and ¼ cup cheddar cheese. Bake again until the cheddar cheese melts. Enjoy!
