A can of vegetarian chili (it’s not all beans—quinoa is in there, too!) makes for a quick and hearty enchilada filling. A 9-inch cast-iron skillet does double duty in this recipe as an oven roaster for the sauce and as a casserole dish for the finished enchiladas.
1 Place 9-inch cast-iron skillet in oven; preheat oven to 400˚F.
2 Remove skillet from oven, and combine mushrooms, ¼ cup green onions, oil, cumin, and coriander in skillet. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Roast 10 minutes, stir, return to oven, and roast 5 minutes more. Reduce oven to 350˚F and remove skillet. Stir ¾ cup crushed tomatoes and broth into mushrooms, scraping skillet to incorporate any browned bits, and return to oven 5 minutes, until heated through and saucy. Transfer mushroom sauce to small bowl, and keep warm. Wipe out skillet, and coat with cooking spray.
3 Combine chili with ½ cup shredded cheddar, ¼ cup queso fresco, ¼ cup green onions, remaining ¼ cup crushed tomatoes, and chili powder in medium bowl. Season with salt, if desired.
4 Working one at a time, brush both sides of tortilla with liquid from mushroom sauce. Spoon ¼ cup chili mixture into center of each tortilla and roll tightly. Place seam-side down in same skillet. Repeat, forming eight enchiladas. Pour mushroom sauce over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup cheddar cheese. Bake 25 minutes. Garnish with remaining ¼ cup green onions and remaining ¼ cup queso fresco, plus fresh, diced tomatoes and sliced avocado.
