Vegan Enchiladas

Tonight we took a little trip to Mexico with my Vegan Enchiladas, and it was delicious. Hope you enjoy this recipe. Save it for later 😉

🍽 Serves 4-5

🕘 50-55 minutes


  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 red onion

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 300g plant-based mince (I used @plantfoodsnz )

  • 1 can black beans

  • ½ cup vegetable stock

  • ½ tsp onion powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp chopped coriander

  • 1 red capsicum (diced)

  • 4 tomatoes (diced)

  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste

  • ½ cup vegetable stock

  • ½ cup passata

  • ¼ cup chipotle sauce (I used Morena) - optional

  • 1 tsp cumin powder

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • Pinch of cinnamon

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 8 tortilla wraps

  • Vegan cheese (I used mozzarella cheese @zenzoitsallgood )

  • Fresh coriander

  • Avocado (optional)


  1. Prepare all the ingredients: Dice the onion, garlic, capsicum, tomatoes.

  2. To make the sauce: In a large pot, heat the oil, add capsicum and tomatoes and sauté for 5 min. Add tomato paste, passata, vegetable stock, chipotle sauce and spices. Feel free to add chili powder at this point if you want it spicy. Bring to simmer and cook for 15 min.

  3. In the meantime, in a large frying pan, heat the oil, add onion and garlic and sauté on medium heat for 3 min. Add plant-based mince and sauté for about 5 min, stirring occasionally. Add black beans, vegetable stock and spices. Simmer for another 5 min. Stir in the chopped coriander.

  4. Preheat the oven to 170’C.

  5. Blend the sauce with a hand blender – I like to leave it quite chunky, but you can blend it until smooth.

  6. Smear about ¼ cup of the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish.

  7. Place the mince beans filling almost at the end of a tortilla. Roll up then place in the baking dish, seam side down. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.

  8. Pour the sauce over the enchiladas, top with grated plant-based cheese, and bake for 15 minutes. Top with fresh coriander.

  9. Serve by itself or with some mashed avocado/plant-based sour cream.

  10. Enjoy! 💚
