Whether you’re vegetarian or not, these Vegetarian Enchiladas are perfect for dinner with friends, family, or even co-workers. Everyone seems to love these. They are always a big hit whenever I bring them to a dinner party.
I don’t make these at the house very often. Since I cook for all boys. They are of course…Big meat-eaters. So when I cook enchiladas for them I usually make my famous Chicken Enchiladas.
Vegetarian Enchiladas With My 10 Minute Enchilada Sauce
Over the years, I’ve gotten used to making my quick enchilada sauce, since it only takes about 10 minutes to make. It’s so much faster than the beef enchilada sauce that I use for my gluten-free enchiladas…I know, I know so many enchilada recipes! They are so good though…Can you blame me?
Let’s Talk Beans!
When it comes to beans in Mexican dishes and especially enchiladas, people most often use black beans. However, you can also use pinto beans. Either of these are a really good choice. They both go well with all of the other ingredients.
You can also do both of these beans. I like mixing it up and having a couple of different beans in my enchiladas!
Ingredients You’ll Need…To Make Vegetarian Enchiladas
What kind of veggies should go into Vegetarian Enchiladas? I love adding red onions, garlic cloves, and bell peppers are a must!
Most people pack their’s with black beans and corn, but I am a big vegetable lover. I do add beans and corn, but that’s not the meat and potatoes (or so some say)…of this recipe.
Another ingredient I like to add that is sort-of meaty…Are mushrooms! Mushrooms have similar textures to meat and just give dishes a fullness that I love. I don’t always need meat, but mushrooms are so good in these Vegetarian Enchiladas!

More Enchilada Recipes!
I like experimenting since I love enchilada sauce so much…For that reason, I’ve made a few enchilada recipes.
The first recipe I came up with was this Cheese Enchiladas Recipe. These are the only enchiladas that I make with a beef enchilada sauce that IS NOT quick! If you know anything about me, I love making quick easy meals.
The good thing about those enchiladas is that you can freeze the sauce, so even though it takes over an hour to make the sauce, I can also get a few meals out of it.
My three teenage boys love…LOVE…My Beef Enchiladas Recipe. Of course, they do! It’s packed with tons of meat and cheese. What’s not to love?
The kid’s second favorite enchilada that’s super easy to make is the Cheese and Onion Enchiladas. The kids don’t usually know there are onions in it. I like sneaking veggies into foods they love. Shhh…!
