Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • You can add whatever you’d like in the bean filling! From chicken, to soy chicken, to just plain beans.
  • Adding hummus to the tortilla gives it flavor- trust me! I was skeptical at first but it taste amazing.
  • Making the sauce from scratch does wonders, however this is a quick and easy version of how to make enchiladas. I will share the longer way coming soon.
