Black Bean and Corn Chilaquiles with Roasted Tomato and Chipotle Sauce

This wonderful vegetarian dish is from Vegetarian Times April 2008 issue. I am a sucker for anything chipotle. This really hit the spot. The recipe makes 8 servings.





Black Bean and Corn Chilaquiles with Roasted Tomato and Chipotle Sauce

1 small white onion, cut into 8 wedges
2 pounds Roma tomatoes, halved
3 large cloves garlic, peeled
6 corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, drained, 1 tablespoon sauce reserved
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 small red onion, diced (1 cup)
1 ½ cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
½ cup low-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon lime juice

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place white onion, tomatoes, and garlic in single layer on baking sheet. Roast 25 minutes, or until onions begin to brown and tomato skins wrinkle. Meanwhile, toss tortilla strips with oil and spread on separate baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt. Cool tortillas and vegetables 20 minutes.

Peel tomatoes and place in food processor with white onions and garlic. Add chipotles and 1 tablespoon adobo sauce; purée until smooth, and season with salt and pepper.

Spread thin layer of tomato mixture in bottom of 1½ quart baking dish. Add tortillas in single layer. Top with black beans, corn, red onion, and cheese. Cover with remaining sauce, and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

Whisk together sour cream and lime juice, and drizzle over chilaquiles.
