Black Bean Enchiladas

Black Bean Enchiladas
Black Bean Enchiladas are a hearty, filling, delicious & surprisingly quick & easy meal.

Here's what you do:

Black Bean Enchiladas

Saute
1 (12 oz ) bag frozen 3 Pepper & Onion Mix (OR,    1 bell pepper & one onion, chopped)*
2 (4oz) Cans Mushrooms (or 8 oz fresh)*
2 (15 oz) cans drained Black Beans (or 3 cups home-prepared, without liquid)
Sauteing Peppers & Onions - when using the frozen kind, they
release enough liquid to cook without added oil for sauteing.

2 T Taco Seasoning (or, pour it in till it looks right : )

Fill with above mixture
    6 vegan Flour Tortillas, - I prefer the kind that are whole wheat and made without saturated or trans fats

Top with purchased vegan Enchilada Sauce, and bake at 350degrees Fahrenheit, for about 15 minutes - till warmed through, but not dried out. If you prefer, they may simply be heated in the microwave.

Top with
    Shredded Lettuce
    Chopped Tomato
    Scallions, if desired
    Chopped Avocados

Serve them with chips and salsa.

*If you prefer, you can substitute other veggies for mushrooms or for peppers. Corn or Zucchini make nice choices.

Make-ahead tip: Double the batch of filling and freeze one batch. That way the next time you want to have Enchiladas, it's just heat, wrap & eat!

Tip for dining with Omnivores: Some diced or shredded chicken may be added to the filling for Omnivores. Also, Shredded cheese may be sprinkled on top.

  1. Hi Anna! So glad to find you!
    For the for bean enchiladas, we do the same you do: he tops them with diced chicken and everyone is happy.

    Me and my omnivore were reading yesterday your "Care & Feeding of Omnivores" and it's great to find an other "mixed" couple like us. Just as you said, we try to eat the same things or at least look-alike dishes.

    He's a great cook, and although he is cooking more vegetarian now, he needs some kind of compensation for his hurt pride. What we do is inviting now and then omnivore friends over for lunch on Sunday, so he can take some attention for his great omnivore cooking skills, without me having to change a bit :)

  3. My girls love making burritos like these during the fast...or "taco" salad if we don't have any wraps on hand. The girls like corn, too. I usually put blue or yellow corn tortillas on top. I've been trying to do with less corn lately, as SO much of it is genetically modified.

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
