Five Layer Enchilada with Salad and Orange Slices
I went looking for a recipe to make for Meatless Monday and stumbled upon a layered enchilada recipe I adapted for our Gluten Free Family.  It turned out beautifully and the kids loved it.

Ingredients:
  • 5 Brown Rice Tortillas from Food For Life
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 T. cumin
  • 1 can bean dip from Frito Lay (or you could use pinto beans and smash them and add garlic powder and onions)
  • 1 large onion (our family loves onions)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1/2 c. salsa plus 1/4 c. for the top after cooking
  • 1 can green mild chilies

Chop the onion and saute in olive oil. Add the two cans beans, drained and rinsed. Add the cumin. cook until beans are well coated with onion and cumin.
You can now start to layer your dinner. I used a pizza pan as my goal was to make this dish look different then an ordinary enchilada.
Lay down a tortilla, spread with bean dip, a scattering of cheese and bean and onion mixture. You can add a couple of T. of salsa, also. Repeat until your fifth layer. Add the mild green chilies to the top and bake at 325 for 20-30 minutes until cheese is melted. Take out and top with salsa.

We then made a quick green salad of lettuce, radishes, green onions, cucumbers and carrots. Sliced a couple of oranges and viola...Meatless Monday dinner, made gluten free.

 Growing up near Tillamook I have been able to tour the Tillamook Cheese Factory several times. Their cheese and other products are still amongst our family's favorites.
Tillamook Yogurt has three new flavors to brag about. Tillamook’s popular line of 6-oz.yogurts is expanding with three new flavors, all made with no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no artificial sweeteners and no
high fructose corn syrup, and like all of its products, Tillamook Lowfat Yogurt is made with the highest
quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones. Additionally, the company is launching Vanilla Bean and Naturally Plain yogurts in new 32-oz. cartons and expanding distribution of
six of its popular 6-oz. flavors in the West.

The latest additions to the lowfat yogurt line include creamy
Banana Vanilla, tart Pomegranate Blackberry and antioxidant-rich
Blueberry Acai. These flavors join other inventive Tillamook
flavors in the 6-oz. size, including Baked Apple Pie, Watermelon
and Strawberry Lemonade, which have a suggested retail price of $0.89.
