Easy Enchiladas

This is a super quick recipe for enchiladas. You can modify it whatever way you'd like - I don't think you can go wrong.

1 (16oz) can of refried beans or refried black beans
1 (16oz) container of cottage cheese
1 Package of whole wheat or flour tortillas (I like Garden of Eatin's Organic Whole Wheat)
1 small onion, chopped
1 small can of green chilies (I like the hot ones, but use the mild ones if want a little spice, or skip it if you don't want any spice)
1 jar of enchilada sauce
1 cup of shredded cheese

scallions for the top, chopped - both white and green parts
black olives - sliced or chopped

Preheat oven to 350.
Spray 8x11 glass pan with cooking spray.
Mix the refried beans and cottage cheese in a medium sized bowl. Add chopped onion and green chilies to the mixture.
Get a tortilla and place a couple of tablespoons full of enchilada sauce in the middle and spread around so one side of the tortilla is covered in sauce.
Place a few spoonfuls of the bean mixture on the enchilada-sauced tortilla.
Roll up the tortilla and place seam-side down on the pan.
Repeat 5 more times.
Spoon more enchilada sauce on the rolled enchiladas - as much as you would like.
Add cheese on top.
Cover and put in oven for 20 minutes. Uncover, and put back in oven for 10 more minutes.
Garnish with scallions or olives, if desired.
