For the Sauce
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 large yellow onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 3 chipotles in adobo
- 1 cup heavy cream
For the Enchiladas
- 1 (12 ounce) package Cascadian Farm Frozen Root Vegetable Hashbrowns
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
Heat oven to 400°F and set an oven rack in the center of the oven.
To make the sauce, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender and just starting to brown, about 3 minutes.
Add tomatoes and chipotles and lower heat to medium. Cover and cook until tomatoes start breaking down, about 3 minutes more.
Uncover, add cream and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, let cool slightly, then blend until smooth. Taste for salt, adding more if needed. Set aside
Next, make the enchiladas by combining root vegetables (it's okay if they're still frozen), garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
Warm tortillas in a hot dry nonstick skillet (a cast iron one works great). Cook them on both sides until warmed through. Keep warm in a tortilla warmer or wrapped in a clean kitchen towel.
Grease a large 9 x 13-inch baking dish a spread a little chipotle sauce on the bottom. Dip 1 tortilla in chipotle sauce, covering it completely, then lay on a large plate or baking sheet. Pile about ¼ cup of filling on one end, then roll the tortilla up and place seam-side-down on the baking sheet. Repeat until all filling has been used.
Spoon remaining sauce over the enchiladas and place in the oven. Bake 30 minutes or until browned on the edges and bubbly. Remove from oven, garnish with avocado, scallion greens, grated Cotija and edible marigolds if you'd like.
