How To Make Vegan Enchiladas 

Making vegan enchiladas is easy and delicious! Here's how to do it:

1. Preheat your oven to 200°C.

2. In a large pan, heat some oil over medium-high heat and add the chopped onions and garlic. Cook until softened, about 3 minutes

3. Add the chipotle spice rub, cumin and diced sweet potatoes and toss lightly for 1-2 minutes, coating the potatoes in the spices

4. Add 200g of chopped tomatoes and 3 tbsp water to the pan and turn to medium heat until it bubbles, and then simmer (10-15 minutes) 

5. In a separate pan, cook the remaining onion, coriander & 600g of chopped tinned tomatoes with 200ml of water, allow this to simmer as this thickens it will become your enchilada sauce. 

6. After your potato mixture has softened, add the canned black beans (drained)

7. Grab your prepared baking dish, this can be an ovenproof dish or a simple casserole dish, whichever you have to hand and begin lining it with corn tortillas to be stuffed with the sweet potato and black bean filling. 

8. Take your enchilada filling and put them in your tortillas, once you have completed this 8 times, use the homemade enchilada sauce to cover the wraps.

9. Next, take out your Skinny Food Co Nacho Cheese Sauce and drizzle it on top of the Enchiladas, this is a great vegan cheese sauce equivalent and really makes the dish that extra level of cheesy!
