Makes 8 servings
1 15.5 oz can low-sodium tomato sauce
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
8 large eggs
¼ cup low-fat milk
⅓ cup chopped green onions
3 tbsp diced green chili peppers
8 6-inch fat-free flour or corn tortillas
1 15.5 oz can low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
6 oz (1½ cup) reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 avocado, sliced into
¼ cup light sour cream
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce with garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin. Set aside.
2. Beat eggs with milk until combined. Heat a large, nonstick skillet, coated with cooking spray, over medium heat. Add eggs, onions, and chilies. Scramble eggs until they're just cooked and still moist.
3. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray, and spread 2–3 tbsp sauce on the bottom of the dish. Set aside.
4. Assemble enchiladas: On each tortilla, spoon 1/8 of the beans and scrambled eggs in a line down the center. Top with 1½ tbsp shredded cheese. Roll each tortilla and place seam-side down in the prepared baking dish. Pour remaining tomato sauce over enchiladas.
5. Cover dish and bake 20 minutes at 350 F. Remove cover, top enchiladas with remaining cheese, and bake 5–7 minutes more until cheese melts.
6. Serve enchiladas garnished with avocado, sour cream, and cilantro.
