    was nervous that this was going to be spicy. i did only add half a jalapeño just in case. i also added regular mexican blend cheese. one of the best meals ive made.

    Love the taste and it's a regular on my meal schedule My son (who's 5) and husband found them too spicy, I guess it depends how hot the chili powder is :) I added a little finely chopped red capsicum and a cup of sweetcorn as well. As for the sauce; I use 1 cup tomato paste, 1 cup tomato sauce and around half a cup of water

    Great recipe! I added broiled poblanos to the filling and made it a bit spicier by keeping jalapeno seeds. So yum!

    I’m 15 and made this as a dinner and it was delicious! I put a bit of sour cream on the side and it tasted so good. 10/10 recommend

    This is a run away favorite. My picky vegetarian and my carnivorous children really enjoyed this meal.

    We added a bunch more spices to the sauce and added real cheese on top. Incredible!

    I do it once a month, love this recipe! I use regular cheese though :o

    I eliminated the oil and the cheese from this recipe to make it Whole Foods plant based compliant and I added lots of veggies to this recipe, 2 medium zucchini, 1 8oz fresh mushrooms, 1/2 bag fresh spinach, 1 can corn, chopped red pepper, two jalapeño, 7 cloves garlic, 2 onions, 2 cans black beans, 6 tsp chili powder, 4 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp coriander, 1 cup fresh cilantro, one can of roasted tomatoes, two cans of red enchilada sauce this made 27 enchiladas so I layered them into deep casserole dish and added sauce to each layer, added more sauce and cilantro to the top and cooked for 25 minutes and topped with vegan parm (made from cashews and nutritional yeast and garlic) and served with fresh avocados and sliced Limes it was amazing! Will make again!

    Totally amazing!! Next time I’m doing double the amount of sauce, but wow was this good

    Better than any meat version of enchiladas I've ever made. I switched up a few things so they were really vegetarian. I used stewed tomatoe and mixed with red enchilada sauce. Added mushroom and green bell pepper to the black beans. And I used organic cheddar and jack cheeses. I stored the rest of the filling in the freezer for another night 😋

    Thought this dish was so good. Not just “good for being vegan” food, but better than the non-vegan enchiladas I’ve made. I did add a little more tomato sauce to the recipe and it turned out perfect. I also didn’t mash the beans!

    This was good. I don't think you need to really mash the beans, though. We didn't bother. Next time I would pour some enchilada sauce or salsa verde over the top. It needs a little more sauce.

    I was nervous about this, as I’ve never made enchiladas before, but the recipe was easy to understand and put together. I made it with ease and it was SO GOOD!!! I will be making this again!!!!

    This recipe was very delicious. But I didn’t use enough tomato purée so the sauce was a bit too light, next time I’ll add more. This recipe was a bit too spicy, but I’ll just add some avocado to serve. Other than a few tweaks for personal preference, this recipe was well worth the try!

    Pretty good, not difficult. Next time I will add some peppers and avocado. I halved the recipe and it still turned out. Would be nice with an herb salad.

    I really liked this. I made my own 'bean mixture', adding corn, red bell pepper, onion and spinach, so only roughly based myself on this recipe. I also used a vegan feta that I like, as I don't live in the US. It was relatively easy and I would definitely make it again!

    Really good, enjoyed the meal!

    My family loves it. We typically we don’t like to use tomato sauce but you can’t really tell with this recipe. It does take a bit of time to make but it’s worth it.

    Tasted awesome. Everyone enjoyed them. Will definitely make again

    So good! So easy and tasty re-heating as well

    This was fantastic! Will be making it again

    Absolutely amazing! I added chopped romaine lettuce into taco lettuce and added to the top for crunch and perfect!

    Outstanding! My wife isn't into stuff like this and scoffed at it until she tried it and then devoured it. My 3yr old son is used to eating junk and turns down everything that isn't and he devoured an entire large bowl. Of course i thought it was great!

    I’ve made this recipe 3 or 4 times now, always ended up really really delicious. My mods to it: -any cheese will do not just vegan (I prefer mozzarella) -can never get the beans to strain and give me the sauce, so I just use less tomato sauce and put the chunk I didn’t use in a sauce pan with oregano, garlic, basil, onion powder, sugar, salt, and a small can of tomato paste until mall the flavours blend What surprises me the most is that there is no heat in the jalapeño.

    This was very good. I did add a 1/2 small can of diced tomatoes with green chili’s to the “sauce” and then topped the enchiladas with the other 1/2.

    A little soggy, but all the flavors blended wonderfully! I used a “Follow Your Heart” brand shredded cheddar, honestly, I didn’t care much for it. Dairy free cheese is always a challenge. I added some corn I had left over from what wasn’t needed in the Spanish rice, turned out very well! Will DEFINATELY make it again, with different cheese.

    Loved these! Turned out tangy and delicious.

    Loved these enchiladas! I didn’t use any cheese and mine still came out absolutely delicious

    Very delicious. I thought it may have been too much chili powder but it turned out great.
