Stacked Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

These stacked enchiladas are full of veggies and have such a great flavor from being roasted.  The hubs likes it with chicken, but you could easily leave it out for a filling vegetarian dinner.
The veggies can be swapped out for whatever you have on hand.

Stacked Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas
Recipe modified from Perry's Plate

1/2 green bell pepper, matchsticks
1 red bell pepper, matchsticks
1/2 head cauliflower, 1/2" chunks
1 small sweet potato, 1/2" cubes (or butternut squash, or carrots)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 c. corn kernels
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 large chicken breast
1/2 c.chopped cilantro
1 c. salsa
2 handfuls fresh spinach (or kale)
6-8 mixed grain Artisan tortillas (or corn, or flour)
1 c. cheddar, shredded
1 c. pepperjack, shredded

Place veggies in a large, rimmed baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil and mix together with your hands.
Squish some veggies aside and place the chicken breast on the sheet.
Season everything with salt, pepper and the cumin.
Roast at 425 for 40 minutes.
Shred chicken with a fork.

Meanwhile, spray an 8x8 or 9x9" baking pan with cooking spray.
Spread 1/3 of the salsa into the bottom of the baking pan, and sprinkle with 1/3 of the chopped cilantro.
Add a layer of tortilla pieces to completely cover the salsa.
Top with 1/3 of the vegetables, 1/2 of the spinach leaves, then 1/2 of the shredded chicken breast.
Top with 1/3 of the cheddar and pepperjack cheeses.

Make a second layer of tortilla, salsa, cilantro, vegetables, spinach, chicken and cheese.
Top with a layer of tortillas, salsa, cilantro, vegetables and cheese (your baking dish should be stacked quiet high by now, you may need to press it down with your hands).
Cover with foil.

Bake at 300 for 20 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes, until cheeses melt and everything is heated through.
Let sit for 5 minutes and cut into squares.
Serve with sour cream and green onions, if desired.
