Soy Chorizo and Vegetables stuff Enchiladas

Yum
Chorizo is a Mexican Sausage, which is all ready cook and ready to use in any dish. Now a days in a market there are lot of soy based products available which vegetarian can use and get the taste or color or texture of meat product. This product is one of them. It made of soy granules with spices like Mexican chili, garlic , salt and other spices. It come in a sausage package also so it looks like sausage but it is 100% vegetarian. Since it is very much used in Mexican cooking I also use it to make my Enchiladas. This dish is like stuff burritos but then it has it's sauce and cheese and it's baked so it's much better then plain burrito. You can use your choice of vegetables, I use red and green capsicum, carrot, onion, garlic, Jalapenos, broccoli.

Ingredients for stuffing:

Half of Soy Chorizo 
1 each Red & Green Capsicum Chopped
1 onion chopped
1 carrot chopped
few flowers of broccoli
7 cloves of Garlic chopped
1 jalapenos Chopped
half zuchinni chopped
1 tsp oil
2 tsp taco seasoning

For Enchiladas

6 Whole wheat Tortillas
8 oz  package of cheddar cheese
6 tooth picks

Ingredients for Sauce
8 oz of tomato puree can
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 Jalapenos finely chopped
1 tsp oil
1 tsp taco seasoning
salt to taste

Method:
Heat oil in a non stick pan.
Add oil in it, then add onion, garlic and jalapenos. cook for 1 minute.
Remove chorizo from casing and add in the mixture. Because it has spices in it , it will become red.
Cook for 2 minutes and add rest of the vegetables along with seasoning.
Check for the salt and add it.
Stuffing is good for 6  tortillas
Cook for 3 minutes covered until vegetables leave their water and cook it till it's gone.
Keep it aside and let it cool. you can not put hot stuffing in tortillas.

For sauce :
Heat a small pan, add oil in it.
Add ginger and Jalapenos in it.
Cook it for 2 minutes and add tomato puree.
Add little water and taco seasoning and boil it for 5 minutes.
Sauce has to thicken so when you baked it water don't spread out from sauce.
Keep it aside.

Assembly:

You can make it on oven too as a casserole but I like to use my toaster oven. If you are using oven preheat at 350 and then take baking dish.
Spread some sauce on bottom.
Put stuffing on tortilla with cheese

Take one tortilla and take big spoonful of stuffing in it. spread cheese on it.
Fold it from two sides and attache toothpick so it doesn't open. Do for the rest of it.
When all is done, spread sauce on top of it and cover it with cheese.
Ready to bake

Bake it till cheese melt.
Serve it with Guacamole , sour cream, salsa.
Don't forget to remove toothpick before you eat.

Diner is served.
