Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this Skillet Cheesy Enchilada Stew

enchilada stew (3)

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day of celebration and lots of good food and drinks. So I had to share this amazing dish I made. Bem, it’s not really a dish – it’s an entire pot full of ooey-gooey cheesy, soy curl-y goodness.

Por alguma razão, I had cheese fondue in my mind. I’ve only had it once, in a Mexican restaurant. It was just a small pot of spicy cheese with a bowl of tortilla chips next to it for dipping. It was sooooo unhealthy and soooo good. It was delicious and kind of disgusting at the same time.

So I wanted to make something scoopable and gooey but much healthier. And I wanted to do it on the stove top so a casserole or bake was out. I didn’t actually decide on any plan but just cooked and let it evolve on its own which is my favorite way to cook. I might write recipes but I hate following them. 🙂

I started at my favorite place – with a bunch of soy curls. Butler Soy Curls are like magic beans to me. I would trade almost anything to have them. I cooked up the soy curls with a bunch of Mexican spices until they were crisp and browned. Then I put them in a bowl and tried desperately not to eat them. I failed. I always fail at not munching them while I continue cooking. That’s why I always make extra 😉

You could leave them in the pot and continue on with the stew but I like to keep the soy curls crisp so I don’t put them back in the pot until the end. I sauteed the aromatics – cebola, pimentão, jalapeno and garlic – and then used whatever veggies I had.

Because I love cooking root to stem, I julienned the broccoli stalks and cooked them too. I added broccoli, mushrooms and black beans. Next came the sauce made with crushed tomatoes and my secret – a bit of brine. When you add the brine from green olives or jalapenos, it gives the sauce this tang that is so good and makes the sauce taste a bit more Mexican. If you don’t have any jarred condiments with brine, you can use apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar.

After the stew is cooked and thick, we add the cheese. You can use shredded cheese like Go Veggie’s Mexican Shreds but I wanted big, thick pieces of melted cheese so I tore slices of Go Veggie Pepper Jack and topped the stew with them. I covered the pot and let it melt.

When it was done, I had a huge pot of ooey-gooey veggies and soy curl stew. I toasted up some garlic bread and Tom and I just scooped up stew with the bread. I imagine if there had been more than just the two of us, I would have just put the whole pot in the center of the table so everyone could scoop but we put some in bowls for individual scooping.

This enchilada stew was so amazing, we were in heaven. The leftovers were just as incredible. But it’s not surprising when you have a dish filled with Butler Soy Curls e Go Veggie Pepper Jack Slices.
