I have to admit: the only time I’ve ever made enchiladas at home was, like, 6 years ago. I don’t know why I’ve neglected to make a pan of delicious tortillas stuffed with delicious fillings topped with a delicious sauce. What could be better than that?

That all changes NOW. I vow to make vegan enchiladas as much as possible, because *news flash*: they’re actually pretty easy to make! And did I mention how delicious they are?

We’re adding a little twist to traditional enchiladas in this White Bean Green Chili Enchiladas recipe. First off, we’re stuffing them with plant-based ingredients like white beans and vegan shredded cheese.

Next, we’re replacing traditional red enchilada sauce with HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa! I know what you’re thinking… the two best things in life, guac and salsa, in one product?? Am I dreaming?!? Nope! This is real.

The HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa is creamy, smooth, and tangy. It’s got a little bit of kick, but not too much! I love using it on these vegan enchiladas, for dipping chips, and as dressing on Mexican-style bowls.

You’ve probably seen the HERDEZ® label at your local grocery store. Fun fact: HERDEZ® Salsa is the #1 selling salsa brand in Mexico! That’s how you know it’s good stuff, people. HERDEZ® brings modern Mexican flavors to life and helps people connect with the delicious and authentic flavors of Mexico. In addition to the Guac Salsa they make a variety of other tasty salsas and sauces; you can head to the HERDEZ® website for more.

How to Make Enchiladas

You need three components for enchiladas: corn tortillas, fillings, and sauce. See, enchiladas really are simple.

We’re stuffing these vegan enchiladas with white beans, green chiles, onion, and vegan shredded cheese (totally optional, but totally tasty). We already know that we are smothering the stuffed tortillas in the rich, smooth HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa!

Get a tortilla, add some Guacamole Salsa, the white bean / green chili / onion mixture, and vegan cheese. Wrap it up and place it seam side down in a casserole dish so it doesn’t open. Repeat with all of your tortillas, or until your dish is full.

Then, (very) generously pour some Guacamole Salsa on top, and sprinkle with some vegan shredded cheese. Bake and get ready to eat!
