Instructions / Easy Black Bean & Sweet Potato Enchiladas
Firstly, preheat the oven to 350F and line a large rectangular baking dish with parchment paper.
- Heat oil in a large frying pan, add the sweet potatoes and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add the diced sweet pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the pepper has softened.
- Stir through the chilli powder and add black beans and canned chopped tomatoes.
- Bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes until the sweet potato has begun to soften. Season with salt and pepper.
- Remove the frying pan from the heat and spoon out 4-6 tbsp of tomato sauce (without any vegetables in it) and set aside.
- Lay a tortilla on a clean flat surface and add about ½ cup of the hot filling in a line across the center. Roll the top and bottom edges to form a closed wrap. Place in the baking dish. Repeat for all of the wraps, pushing each one close to the next so it appears packed.
- Drizzle with saved tomato sauce and nacho cheese sauce (optional) in the middle of the enchiladas and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
- Finish with a garnish with cilantro (optional)
Serve as is or with a side of vegan sour cream and hot sauce.
