1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion
1 can vegetarian refried beans
6 flour tortillas
½ pound Colby Jack cheese, shredded
½ pound Tex-Mex cheese mix, shredded
1 cup tomatoes, diced
¼ cup banana peppers, sliced
¾ cup sour cream
1 jar enchilada sauce

Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet. Slice the onion into rings. and add it to the oil. Cook until the onion begins to brown. Add the refried beans to the mix, stirring constantly.

Spread the hot refried beans over each tortilla, and then add a generous amount of both cheeses on top. Place a few tomatoes and banana peppers over the cheese, dot with sour cream and the roll each tortilla into open-ended tubes. Place the tubes into a cake pan, and pour the enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Serve warm.

Cheesy Potatoes
Ingredients You Will Need:
3 pounds Red Pontiac potatoes
½ cup grated Swiss cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
4 tablespoons salted butter
Salt
Pepper

Peel the potatoes, and then slice them into a large bowl. Cover with cold water while you work on the rest of the recipe because potatoes will darken if peeled and left uncovered for long.

Mix the cheeses, green onions, garlic and parsley together. Spray the bottom of a roasting pan with non-stick vegetable spray. Place one layer of potatoes into the roaster, and sprinkle with the cheese mixture. Continue layering the potatoes and sprinkling the cheese mixture, making sure you sprinkle salt and pepper on each layer. You should end up with about three layers.

Melt the butter, and pour it over the top. Cover and bake for about 30 to 45 minutes in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
