  • 16 ounces vegetarian refried beans
  • 20 ounces enchilada sauce
  • 3 1/2 cups Oaxaca cheese Can also use mozzarella or jack
  • 10 corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cup cotija cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet and cook tortillas on both sides 30 seconds to 1 minutes or until the tortillas are pliable.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of refried beans and a small handful of cheese in the center of each tortilla and roll to close. Save about 2 cups of cheese for the top of the enchiladas.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Place rolled enchiladas seam side down on top of enchilada sauce.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until edges are bubbly and cheese has melted. Turn on the broiler for 1 - 2 minutes to brown the cheese. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.
  • Remove enchiladas from the oven. Top with crumbled cotija cheese and chopped cilantro if desired. Serve alongside pico de gallo and diced avocado.
