Add mushrooms, kale and 1 cup water. Cover; cook 5 to 10 minutes or until kale is wilted. Stir in green chilies and refried beans; cook 5 minutes. Stir in cooked quinoa.

Working with 1 tortilla at a time, spread a little of the quinoa mixture on one-third of each tortilla. Roll up, and place seam sides down in baking dish. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over enchiladas; cover with remaining cheese.

    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with remaining ingredients.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    To freeze enchiladas before baking, wrap pan tightly with foil. Wrap again in plastic wrap. Label enchiladas, and freeze up to four months. To bake from frozen, remove plastic wrap and bake (with foil on) in preheated 350°F oven about 1 hour; remove foil, and bake another 30 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
  • Tip 2
    To thaw enchiladas before baking, let stand in the fridge overnight. Bake as directed above in the recipe.
