Cold weather makes me crave hearty food. And fake cheese. Black bean enchiladas fit the bill perfectly!

- 1/2 a vidalia onion, diced
- 1/2c mushrooms, sliced
- 2c spinach, shredded
- 1c fresh corn kernels
- 1 can black beans, squished – you can do this with your bare hands, a fork or in the food processor. I think the former is the best/most fun!
- 10 corn tortillas
- 1 can enchilada sauce
- 1 block vegan cheeze (I used Follow Your Heart Monterrey Jack, but your fave will be just fine!)
Preheat the oven to 350.
In a small frying pan, saute the onion and mushrooms in a little oil or margarine until the onions turn translucent. Toss the spinach in and cook it all up, stirring, for a couple of more minutes until the spinach wilts down. Dump the mixture into a big bowl and add the corn and beans. Add your hot sauce until the mixture is as hot as you want!
In a lightly oiled 9X12″ pan, pour about 1/3 of the enhilada sauce, spreading it across the bottom.
Divide the veggie mixture between the tortillas, rolling them up as you go. Place them seam-side-down in the pan. Dump the rest of the enchilada sauce over everything, trying to sort of evenly coat your 8 little enchiladas. Top it all off with your cheeze and toss it in the oven.
Bake for about 30-40 minutes, until the cheeze is a little melty. Serve!
