Instructions

To make sauce, sauté onions, green pepper, and garlic in oil. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add remaining sauce ingredients; set aside. For filling, sauté onions, green pepper, and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add mashed kidney beans, corn, and 1/2 cup sauce. To assemble enchiladas, spread 1/2 cup saud on the bottom of a 6x10-inch baking pan. Spread 1/3 cup of bean mixture onto each tortilla. Roll up tightly and place tortillas in pan seam side down. Spoon remaining sauce over tortillas. Cover and bake in a 350-degreen oven for 30 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 5 more minutes.
