  10. Place on the baking tray.
  11. Repeat until all tortillas are done and placed side by side on the tray.
  12. Pour all of the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas.

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.
