  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.

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.

I love enchiladas so was looking forward to this recipe but unfortunately it was all a bit bland!

Lovely, simple recipe which can be modified to suit what vegetables you have lying around. As with other comments, I tend to add 1tsp ground cumin, 1tsp smoked paprika, 2-3 tsp of mild chilli powder and chopped chilli dependent on who's eating it. I always add some sugar and tomato puree to help give depth of flavour. Last time I made this I added some boiled rice and turned it into savoury rice dish which can be served by itself or as a side to meat/fish.

Added courgette and peppers and a fresh chilli. Husband never usually eats veggie and he ate it all up. Very easy and tasty. Will be a firm favourite

Quite enjoyed this! I added coriander as I had some that needed using up. Got in a bit of a mess rolling up the tortillas. I think next time I will use normal sized ones rather than small ones. Will slightly increase the amount of yoghurt/cheese mixture as well so that it covers the whole dish.

Excellent recipe, just made a few modifications: Used 0.5 tbsp cumin, 0.5 tbsp hot chilli powder, and 0.5 tbsp ground coriander to make the sauce more flavourful. Used 500mls passata plus 500mls beef stock for the enchilada sauce. Made the yoghurt sauce with 300ml yoghurt and 100g cheese. This made enough for eight enchiladas.

Super recipe. Simple to make, really hearty and tasty. To be honest, I don't think I'll bother making meat enchiladas ever again. Everyone loved them from adults to toddler.

Love, love, love these. Really tasty, filling and quick to eat. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed them and didn't realise that they were meat free.

Supper? Isn't that a piece of toast before bed?
