Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the onions and carrots for 5-8 mins until soft – add a splash of water if they start to stick. Sprinkle in the chilli powder and cook for 1 min more. Pour in the tomatoes and pulses and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 5-10 mins, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from the heat and season well.
  2. Heat grill to high. Spread a spoonful of the bean chilli over a large ovenproof dish. Lay each tortilla onto a board, fill with a few tbsp of chilli mixture, fold over the ends and roll up to seal. Place them into the ovenproof dish. Spoon the remaining chilli on top.
  3. Mix the yogurt and grated cheese together with some seasoning, and spoon over the enchiladas. Grill for a few mins until the top is golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad.

Really tasty and filling, i would put more chilli in next time, which will no doubt be soon.

Delicious, quick to make, and very filling. I used corn tortillas, and equal quantities of hot chilli powder and ground cumin (1 tsp of each). A mixture of one can of lentils and one of mixed beans gave a really good consistency, almost meaty.

SO tasty - added garlic, grated courgette and a tiny sprinkle of sugar. The yogurt is a nice touch!

Tried this recipe tonight and it was fantastic! Made the chili with sweetcorn, kidney and cannelini beans which made a very light but filling base. Served with garlic bread and salad and was a great meal, definately will make again!

I'm making these for the second time today, as friends begged me to make them again! I've added black beans,, mushrooms, red and yellow pepper, chilli flakes, fresh chilli and fresh lime juice to give them a bit more strength and flavour. They're delicious!

This was much better than I expected - however was not piping hot which is OK with me, but for people who like it piping hot, I'd put in the oven instead of grilling.
I used corn tortillas which I think have a softer texture.

This is a good midweek veggie meal but does need tweaking. I add paprika, cumin, a stoock cube and tomato puree. Also, double the amount of cheese and bake in the oven for 20 mins at 200 degrees. I agree it could be bland if you followed the recipe to the letter.

Made this dish this evening as had friends over for dinner - massive success all round! So quick and simple to make, not to mention cheap, filling and tasty. The mixed beans provide great texture - even my sceptical meat eating friends said they didn't miss not having meat. They've all requested copies of the recipe!

This is so good, I've made it for several dinner parties and it always goes down well - even my partner who usually complains about meals without meat complimented it

Brilliant recipe. Store cupboard ingredients, cheap, easy and very very tasty. Made cheese sauce as had forgotten to buy yoghurt.

Really delicious and very easy to halve the recipe and keep the leftovers. Also great for a skint student as it's a pretty cheap recipe and mostly uses store-cupboard ingredients.

I added extra chilli to these to spice them up a bit, i think next time i might not add both tins of tomatoes though...

I nor my family are vegetarians, but I wanted to try these. We are trying to cut down on meat to be more healthy. I followed the recipe exactly apart from one thing. I added a teaspoon of cumin powder. These were delicious and even my meat loving son gobbled them up! Thanks for a great recipe!

Very yummy but I did add cumin, ground and fresh coriander to increase the flavour otherwise it is a bit bland. My family really enjoyed it with the additions.
