I don’t know about you, but I love me some enchiladas. Especially with some tasty beans and sweet roasted peppers! So so good.
These veggie enchiladas have been a staple in our home for awhile. I make them all the time and somehow we never tire of their delicious flavor!
Whether you’re in need of a meal to bring to a friend, or you’re tight on time to make a tasty family meal – these cheesy enchiladas are the perfect recipe.
Now, let’s get cookin’!
To make this meal you’ll need just 7 simple ingredients. Here’s all that you’ll need to make it happen: flour tortillas, Mexican blend cheese, garlic powder, black beans, red peppers, enchilada sauce, and oil.
How to Make Black Bean Enchiladas – Step by Step
- (1) First, core the peppers and wash the seeds out. Brush with oil and broil on HIGH for 10=15 minutes (rotate every 2-3 minutes until equally charred).
- (2) Let peppers cool before removing charred skin with paper towel. Then dice peppers.
- (3) Simmer black beans on stove top for 8-10 minutes with garlic powder and salt.
- (4) When black beans are finished fill in tortilla with red peppers, then roll. Repeat until finished.
- (5) Spread thin layer of enchilada sauce on bottom of baking dish, then add folded enchiladas. Cover with generous amount of sauce and then cheese. Bake uncovered at 350F for 15 minutes.
Extra Enchilada Tips
The filling: I only added peppers to this recipe, but you can certainly add more roasted vegetables such as small chopped broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, or corn.
The sauce: I absolutely love Siete enchilada sauce – the ingredients are super clean, fresh, and the taste is perfection. If you have a yummy homemade sauce for enchiladas, feel free to use it up in this recipe!
Tortilla choices: I’ve used both corn and flour tortillas when it comes to enchiladas, both are delicious in different ways. Corn will have more flavor but less doughy texture, flour holds super well and has a soft texture with less intense flavor. For a happy medium use a blended tortilla of corn + flour!
Toppings: we love serving this up with avocado slices and cilantro over top!
Tips for Freezing & Storing Leftovers
Keep leftovers fresh by storing in a glass airtight container chilled in the fridge for 3-5 days. Reheat in oven at 350F covered with foil or microwave.
Freeze by assembling enchiladas in a dish with sauce and cheese – do not bake. Wrap thoroughly with plastic wrap, then freeze for 1-2 months. When ready to prepare, remove and let thaw before baking at 350F for required cook time.
I hope you love these soft & cheesy black bean stuffed enchiladas. They have all the flavor you could ask for – and all the veggies too!
Enjoy, friends! xoxo
