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.

This was a tasty simple lunch. I substituted a can of kidney beans in chilli sauce and 1/2 tsp chilli powder and followed the rest of the recipe.

One of our favourites and easily adaptable. Sometimes add grated courgette, peppers or grated sweet potato. Never put chilli in but do use at least one can of mixed beans in spicy sauce instead and use 1 and a half cans of chopped toms . With extra filling I can get at least 10 normal sized wraps. I only put filling in wraps and mix a little with half a can of chopped toms for bottom of dish. I just spread the yoghurt over topped with cheese. Today I mixed in a small pack of chorizo!

Delicious recipe but on reading the comments I added cumin seeds some ground coriander and some ground paprika. I also missed out the yoghurt and popped in a stock pot veg stock cube as well. It was delicious and will def cook this one again.

I used regular sized tortillas, so had to to spread the filling thin to stretch out and that was despite increasing the amounts. Used kidney beans in chilli sauce as well as mixed pulses. I gave the onions and carrots a long and low cook, covered on a low heat. Not a difficult recipe open to any addition such as peppers and onions.

To make this recipe really quick and easy I used the canned mixed beans in mild chilli sauce you can get from the supermarket. I just soften up some onion and garlic, added to the beans with some oregano and cooked that off for a bit. I used 3 x normal sized wholemeal tortillas (3 good portions) which could be generously covered with the bean sauce. Once the yogurt cheese mix was poured over the top I popped it all in the oven at about 170 fan for 15 minutes or so which gives lovely even cooking and browning results. A great recipe though, tasty filling and healthy. Win win !!

Love veggie enchiladas- but I added some mushrooms, green pepper and veggie mince (I used Quorn) along with smoked paprika, cumin and coriander as others have suggested. Serving with guacamole and fresh coriander chopped up on top is good too. Only warning is if you leave it under grill too long easy for the yogurt to curdle, I prefer adding a dollop on top when serving.

Love this recipe, it's on regular rotation. Although I can see how it could be bland without spices added, so I use it as a base recipe, and always add cumin, paprika, smoked paprika and ground coriander!

I've made this a couple of times, and definitely better to use creme fraiche instead of yoghurt!

I made this last night for the first time, but having read other people's comments I have added ground cumin, smoked paprika and some brown sugar to give it extra flavour. While smoked paprika and sugar worked well, the ground cumin really didn't seem to go well with the dish. Also, watch out if you're adding hot chilli powder - I am usually a fan of spicy food, but a teaspoon of hot chilli powder was too much.

Hmmmm. I thought this was boring even after spicing it up a bit with smoked paprika and a chopped red pepper and and adding extra cheese to the topping. Other family members thought it was really good though so I am giving it 3 stars. I might make it again but if I do, I will think of other ways to add flavour.

Nice if you enhance it. I added Cajun spice as no enchilada should not have this! I would have liked some indication as to whether it could be frozen.

Thanks for your comment. All our recipes that freeze well have a blue star symbol underneath the social media icons at the top of the recipe. For best results we do not recommend freezing this recipe. Hope that helps!

Added a chopped red chilli, tomato paste and seasoning to the bean chilli, and added some vegetable bouillon to the yoghurt to get more flavour. Yum!

I'm not sure what chilli powder the original recipe calls for, but I used 2 tsp and it rendered the dish inedible. The dogs turned their noses up, and now I'm debating whether it's safe to give to the chickens.

I love Enchiladas but try to follow a wheat and grain free diet where possible. I feel much better for it! I've created a take on Enchiladas using egg whites instead of the tortillas which I've called Egg-Chiladas. I know it sounds odd but even my fussy friends think they taste great. Hears a link to the recipe if you want to see for yourself. http://kinectmethod.co.uk/recipes/egg-chiladas/
