*When I refer to my blog name, it will be L.G.E.W. Why? Because I want to.
*When I post a recipe, it will be titled "recipe". Why? So you know what to expect.

*Last but not least, when I post my random living with the l.g.e.w folks my titles might be somewhat wacky. They might be just for the halibut.
My hope is to eliminate any unnecessary wait one might go through when entering one of my posts. However, I still want to keep things unexpected and fresh.
So, can anyone guess what this post is about?
If you looked at the top of the page and noticed the title, you can see that a recipe awaits you. Shocker, I know.
Do I have your attention?
This recipe was inspired by my craving for enchiladas.
And the can of black beans sitting in my cupboard.
Let's skip the process.
Here's the recipe.
Black bean and sweet corn enchiladas
with chive and onion cream cheese
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups frozen sweet whole kernel corn, thawed
1 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup chive and onion cream cheese
3/4 cup cheddar cheese
3/4 cup pepper jack cheese
1 small can diced green chilies
1 10 oz can mild enchilada sauce
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp chili powder
13 yellow corn tortillas
Salt to taste
Heat oven to 350
In a large nonstick skillet on medium heat add two tablespoons olive oil. Saute chopped onion with a sprinkle of salt for 5 minutes. Add cumin, coriander, and chili powder. Toast for 1 minute. Add black beans and corn; saute for 5 minutes. Mix in the cream cheese and green chilies until creamy and heated through. Put mixture in a medium size bowl and fold in cheddar and jack cheese.
Meanwhile, place tortillas in a damp paper towel and heat in microwave for 30 seconds.
In a 9 by 13 baking dish cover the bottom with about a quarter of the enchilada sauce. Start assembling the enchiladas by placing 2-3 tablespoons of mixture in each tortilla. Fold and lay seem side down in prepared baking dish. Pour the rest of the sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions and serve with your favorite toppings.
