Butternut Squash and Poblano Enfrijoladas

Butternut Squash and Poblano Enfrijoladaswith Queso Fresco

With tortillas wrapped around succulent fillings, enfrijoladas are closely related to Mexican enchiladas. The difference? Instead of the typical bright red, tomato-based chile sauce, this dish is topped with refried or puréed beans to create the hearty, saucy element. In this vegetarian version, Chef Michelle is roasting butternut squash, poblano chile, and onion, then blending the veggies with tomato salsa and melty Monterey Jack. It's the perfect tender, cheesy filling to pair with the black bean sauce, creamy avocado, fresh cilantro, and crumbles of queso fresco.
