  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Toss squash with tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange squash on baking sheet. Roast 45 minutes or until soft, stirring twice during cooking.
  2. Transfer squash into large bowl. Mash until smooth. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add onion and garlic; cook until softened, stirring occasionally. Add black beans and diced green chiles. Cook 3 minutes. Add cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Add onion mixture to squash; stir to combine.
  4. To assemble enchiladas, wrap LA VICTORIA™ Tortillas in damp paper towels and heat in microwave 30 seconds; turn over and heat 30 seconds more. Spread 1½ cups LA VICTORIA® Red Enchilada Sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 glass baking dish or casserole. Place 3 tablespoons squash filling in center of each warm tortilla and top filling with 2 tablespoons shredded cheese. Loosely roll tortillas up into wide cigars. Place filled tortillas seam side down in sauce. Repeat using remaining tortillas and filling.
  5. Top completed tortillas with another 1½ cups enchilada sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered 30 minutes or until hot.
