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.

Good basic recipe but I pre-empted the blandness that I'm pretty sure would come from using no spices. I added cayenne pepper, cumin, fresh coriander and lime juice, as well as sugar to bring out the flavour of the tomatoes. Tasty but fairly sure it wouldn't have been otherwise!

Quick and easy recipe which is really filling and is easy to adapt. I'm not a huge fan of tomatoes so I blitzed them with a hand blender and stirred in extra yoghurt to the mixture before putting in the wraps. As a previous contibutor said leftovers are great warmed up the next day and they even got the seal of approval from my carnivore partner.

This was really enjoyable. I didn't have any yoghurt, so just used cheddar for the topping and served it with a bit of salad. Really impressed with this recipe!

Not sure about this, the chilli mix was nice but needed reducing for alot longer than is stated-would of been very watery otherwise. I added tomato puree aswell which I think it needed.

Think the chilli mix would of been nicer with rice rather than a tortilla.

This was very easy and delicious. I cooked some minced meat and added it to the sauce when it was done as my husband is a meat lover. He loved this meal and asked me to make it again another day. So will for sure make this again.

Made this tonight for the family with the following modifications: Only used 1 tin beans (kidney), 1 tin tomatoes, same amount of veg with 1/2 yellow pepper and a few mushrooms added. Added cumin, mixed herbs, splash balsamic vinegar. veg stock cube , a squirt of tomato puree, and tsp sugar to sauce.
Made in individual bowls and baked instead of using grill (20 mins gas 6) and added cubes of chicken to vegi food hating husband's portion and extra chilli to mine and husband's.
Kids loved - on their top 10 list of 'make agains', husband loved with the chicken. I loved mine!

Loved these, they were really tasty and so easy to make. The only modification I made was to add button mushrooms. Definitely a recipe that will become a firm favourite in this house!

This was delicious! Didn't add the yoghurt at the end, just used plain cheese instead. Served with home made guacamole and some rice.

Although unsure whether the kids will eat this as their first every vegetarian meal, it seemed a good alternative to the normal chicken enchiladas they have. Everyone LOVED it! Its easy, not expensive and very filling...chicken out, beans in!

Loved the yoghurt cheese topping, added cumin and and garlic and also chopped mushrooms. Everyone including the kids enjoyed. Looking forward to using fresh lasagne with the same mix and some cheese sauce...yum

I have just made this recipe, and I made some changes, which I felt made the dish better. I put three tins of pulses in, instead of two and put cheese on top instead of yoghurt. The dish was delicious and we didn't miss the meat at all. I will definitely consider making this recipe again.

These were ok but I think plain tortillas would work better. I would also reccomend using the sauce only inside the wraps to avoid it going as soggy.

Very yummy in the end, but a bit bland without a few additions. Added garlic to the onions, zucchini in with the carrot, and also added a veggie stock cube, cumin and tomato paste along the way. Left the cheese out, and served with sour cream and guacamole - tasty!

Really enjoyed this, was so quick to make after work. I somehow forgot to buy any carrots so used what was in the fridge, chopped courgettes, leeks and baby corn. Also put in half chilli powder and half smoked paprika. Gave it a nice taste. I warmed the tortillas in the microwave before filling as I was worried about them not being warmed through enough. Also added a lot more cheese which I felt made it even better! Served with a green salad and a nice glass of chilled white wine....Yum

Really enjoyed these even my meat loving husband said they were very tasty. I may try it with rice instead of the tortillas as a veggie chilli. A winner and I will be making them again soon

Easy to make, tasty and colourful. Turned out really well. Served with fried chicken for the meat eaters.
