These enchiladas are a wonderful meal fresh from the oven or heated up the next day for lunch. For a quick cheat, you can microwave frozen butternut squash. For a little crunch, toasted pumpkin seeds make a great topping.

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 T. soy sauce
  • 2-3 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Place all the tomato sauce, garlic, onion, water, soy sauce, chipotles and spices in a blender. Blend until smooth.
