Friday Flashback Recipe

by lindsay cotter on June 15, 2012

So, ever wonder how I happened to start this little blog? Well, back in the day, I used to post recipes on the hubs’ blog. I’d share what I was feeding him for training, taper, etc. This was before Healthy Bites took over my life and I was a newly wed. Meaning, I adored making meals from scratch each night. Haha. Not so much anymore. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE to make meals from scratch, but don’t have nearly as much time. I still cook almost every night but let’s just say the minute brown rice with eggs, salsa, and chicken sausage have been showing up more than usual. Winking smile

This recipe I made back in 2008. Man, I really should make it again. It was delicious! you can find the original blog post here. Glad I learned how to take better pictures since then, well kinda. haha.

Salmon Black Bean Enchiladas

Salmon Black Bean Enchiladas
Recipe Type: Gluten Free Mexican
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 35 mins
Serves: 2 -4
Ingredients
  • 1. 6-8 oz. of grounded salmon burger patties.
  • 2. 3-4 medium white corn tortillas
  • 3. 1 can jalapeno or regular refried BLACK beans (low-fat).
  • 4. 1 small can of jalapeno diced tomatoes
  • 5. 1/2 cup mozzarella or pepper jack cheese. Vegan option: DAIYA
  • 6. 2-3 shakes of Cumin
  • 7. 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese (light)- Optional
  • 8. Salsa to taste
  • For those wanting extra carbs, add in some pre-cooked brown or spanish rice. I had some extra Santa Fe brown rice blend which I placed under the cheese before baking it in the oven.
Instructions
  1. Spray a baking dish with oil. Take each corn tortilla a lightly pat on butter or olive oil. Go ahead a cook salmon burger meat so that they are fully down but not well-done. In the meantime heat beans in microwave or stove top and mix in laughing cow cheese, cumin, and tomatoes. Make sure the cheese is all melted but it’s not too hot yet. Then place black mixture and salmon meat together in one bowl. Transfer heaping portions into each corn tortilla and roll tightly. Line each tortilla up in the baking dish. Cover the top of the tortillas with more tomatoes and salsa, then add the cheese on top to cover the tortillas evenly. I baked this for about 15-20 minutes on 350 degrees but it depends on how melted you like your cheese. You can also broil it for the last 3-5 minutes or so to get it even more browned. All together this should only take 30 minutes max. I heated mostly everything in the microwave and used leftover salmon burger patties so it was cake!

 

Now, wish me luck.. I mean wish us luck. We trying to move this weekend and housesit and celebrate father’s day. Uh? Who planned that? Crazy Cotters!

Off to go find where I stored all our stuff before our New Zealand trip. Sheesh!

 

What’s your favorite flashback recipe?

Cheers,

I’ve been doing flashback recipes too lately! I’m currently eating my soy free fried rice with coconut amines and sriracha! I get caught up in trying to do different things all the time and forget about my old favorites. Your salmon dish looks amazingly delicious!!! Have a great weekend and good luck with packing!

Lasagna! Reminds me of my mother’s kitchen!
I still make it for my boys, but with a lot less pasta and cheese! (And I don’t eat 1/4 of the pan any more)

I’ve never actually made enchilada’s before, but it looks really good. Mine would probably be the traditional baked lasagna. Of course, being single, I don’t make it for myself, but I grew up making it a lot for my family.

Hmm… maybe I’ll have to go back and check out what you were feeding James to keep him fit and healthy! I love hate cooking–I hate all the prep and all the clean up–If I’m going to reallllly cook it’s got to be for a lot of food at once. I’ve been doing a lot or natural chicken or lamb sausage from Whole Foods, plus a few chicken tenders all done on the foreman. What takes me forever are the side dishes! I guess that’s what I get for going through the hassle of squash fries every night.

Recipe looks great!

oh my gosh, i hate cleaning the Foreman!! I’d use a stove anyday. Sides are hard. My recommendation… steam in microwave or cook sweet potato in microwave then add some coconut butter. mmm, yum.

Oh man, I used to be all about the elaborate recipes – at least a couple times a week. My favorites were homemade chicken pot pie casserole and Butternut Squash Ravioli with brown butter goat cheese sauce (ALL from scratch!!)

I just don’t have time for that anymore, so I’m like you – throw some veggies and some protein in a bowl, smother in sauce and spice and call it dinner. Let’s just say that the microwave isn’t going unused. :)

I made enchiladas for the first time ever last night! They were so delicious! I might have to use this recipe though because I ended up buying a sauce from Williams & Sonoma because I had NO idea how to make them and as soon as I saw the sauce I knew I had to get home and make them! haha

Good luck with the move!

I usually make one recipe but never repeat it. I have a few fallback meals I like, but they wouldn’t really count as “recipes” unless you consider fried eggs a recipe.
