Meatless Enchiladas

Brandi Kirkpatrick


Another recipe my students ended up selling, it was a fav. We had a large number of no meat students.
I use this recipe as a base and then fiddle with proteins. It tastes good with hamburger, chicken, and even additional beans thrown in.

1 cup (8oz) cottage cheese
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 packet lipton onion soup mix

2In a large bowl combine refried beans, cottage cheese, onion soup mix, and 1 cup of cheese; set aside.
