I love these Black Bean Potato Vegan Enchiladas

Enchiladas are one of those staple meals I could eat once a week. There are so many options when it comes to filling and sauces.

The tricky part when making enchiladas vegan is getting a creamy texture without any cheese. And I’ve told you more than once about my lack luster feelings about vegan cheese.

Vegan Enchiladas are the best!

With both of my other enchilada recipes (Black Bean Green Chili Enchiladas and Vegan Enchilada Casserole) I used my Vegan Jalapeño Cream Sauce to get that creamy texture.

But I know everyone isn’t as much of a spice addict as me. So I wanted to create a new recipe for people who want a more tame recipe.

But don’t worry, there is still plenty of flavor going on in these bad boys.

And most of that flavor is coming from the avocado cilantro sauce. Grilled onions, fresh cilantro and creamy avocado are blended up with some spices to make a sauce that is to die for.

These enchiladas are hearty and healthy – perfect for meal prepping or a weeknight dinner!

Ingredients

FOR THE AVOCADO CILANTRO SAUCE

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro stems removed
  • 1/4 cup water

FOR THE ENCHILADAS

Instructions
 

FOR THE AVOCADO CILANTRO SAUCE

  • Heat olive in a pan over medium heat. Add red onion, garlic, cumin and salt to the pan. Saute until onions begin to soften – approx. 5 minutes. Add onion mixture, avocado, cilantro and water to a blender. Blend on high until combined. Pour into a bowl and set aside. 

FOR THE ENCHILADAS

  • Add potatoes to a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are fork tender – approx. 10 minutes. Drain potatoes and set aside.
  • While potatoes are boiling heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add red onion, bell pepper, black beans, cumin, salt and 1/4 cup enchilada sauce to the pan. Saute until onions and bell pepper are softened – approx. 5-7 minutes.
  • Place the pot you used to cook the potatoes back on the stove. Add drained potatoes, 1/2 the avocado cilantro sauce and 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce to the pot. Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, break apart potatoes* until they are combined with the sauce. Add bell pepper, bean mixture to the potatoes and stir to combine. 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and steam in the microwave for 30 seconds. Cover the bottom of a baking dish with 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce. Fill each tortilla with approx. 1/4 cup of filling and roll up to contain the filling. Place each filled tortilla seam side down in the baking dish. Top with remaining enchilada sauce and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow enchiladas to cool for 5 minutes. Top with remaining avocado cilantro sauce and any optional toppings you are using. Serve and enjoy!
