SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is a really great recipe, I loved it!

For people who have trouble rolling them into enchiladas.....put a little bit of the enchilada sauce in a skillet on low heat and swirl the tortillas around in that on both sides for 30 seconds or so (15 seconds each side).  Then put in your filling and roll them up into the pan, etc etc

They're excellent, thanks!

I don't think this needs another rave review...but I'm doing it anyway. I first made this about 3 weeks ago, and my husband loves it! We have had it every week since! I use corn tortillas and only black beans. In the cheese sauce I add cumin, chili powder, and lime juice. I make it casserole style also just because it is easier. So good!

:) I started to learn to cook vegan from this website about 6 months ago and this recipe was one of the first dishes that I made. It's a favorite in our house now, we eat it at least once a week, and it'd would be more than that if my boyfriend got to!

This recipe was AMAZING.  The best vegan enchiladas I have ever tasted.  I am new to this site but I am interested in knowing is there any way to search on other recipes that were submitted by the person who submitted this one?

Made this last week and am making it again tonight, but this time in casserole form.  FANTASTIC!  And this will be the third time making the cheese sauce, I made it last week on its own just to eat with chips, best nutritional yeast cheese sauce I've tried, and I've tried a lot.  This recipe is amazing, pure and simple.  The prep time isn't bad at all and the final product is not only delicious but very filling.  This is going into my regular rotation, my omni husband INSISTS upon it!  ;)b

I really wanted to follow this recipe more closely, but I forgot! I forgot to take out some cheeze sauce for the top....and my sauce was too liquidy...so I decided to do a casserole. I sauteed some zucchini, and added that to the sauce with the beans...and used homemade enchilada sauce (Grandma Cortez). It is so good! Yum. I think it's worth the distress we'll have from the NY....

I'm not a big enchilada fan but I just made these and they are pretty good. I used large flour tortillas and omitted the cilantro because the boyfriend hates it. I also followed others' suggestions and added the juice of half a lime to the sauce and a few mild diced green chiles. I definately think this is makes the sauce taste a lot better. I also used only two cans of beans....one can of black beans and one can of refried pinto beans, salsa style (Trader Joes), and one onion.  Since the beans already had salsa, I didn't add more. Overall, I think this is a good recipe. It makes A LOT! I used 14 tortillas.

WOW! I made these for the first time and brought them to a birthday party. Non-vegans loved them.This was also my first experience with nutritional yeast sauce-I can't believe I waited so long!

Delicious! I added sliced olives and red chili flakes.  I also mashed the beans (not completely) with a potato masher. SOOO GOOOD!  ;D
