-2 Tablespoons water or chicken/vegetable broth

What you do: 

Enchilada Directions



Heat 2 tsp vegetable oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers. Cook, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes. Increase the heat to medium high and stir in the vegan chicken strips, chilies, and seasonings (oregano, cilantro, soffritto packet, cumin, and garlic powder). Cook, stirring, until the mixture is mixed and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Stir in black beans and 1/4 cup water or broth, reduce the until water/broth cooks out. Once done, taste for salt and set aside for assembling.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees


Spread 1 cup of the enchilada sauce and 1 1/2 tsp oil in a casserole or baking dish. Place your tortilla wrapped in a damp paper towel in microwave for 1 minute. Take tortillas out of microwave and set on side to assemble enchiladas. Spoon a heaping 1/4 cup chicken & black bean mixture onto the tortilla with 1 Tbsp cheese over top of the mixture, roll it up and put seam-side down in the baking dish, arranging them side by side in the dish.


Pour remaining enchiladas sauce and top with the remaining cheese. Bake until warmed through, about 20 minutes. Divide among plates and top with more cilantro, sour cream, and/or avocado slices ( if desired).







Saffron Rice Directions

Pour vegan chicken broth into a medium sized pot and place pot on stove over high heat. Add saffron, salt, oregano, cilantro, soffritto packet, and oil. Bring mixture to a boil and then add rice, let cook at a boil for 1 to 2 minutes and then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook 15 minutes or until liquid has been fully absorbed and rice is no longer hard, stirring occasionally  Once cooked through, Stir in chilies and peas and place lid back on pot for 5 to 10 minutes. Before serving, fluff rice and taste for salt. Serve along side enchiladas.


Black Bean Directions

Mix black beans and chilies in a bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes until beans are heated through. Add bean mixture to a food processor and blend until beans are smooth and no lumps are present, adding water or stock as needed. Add smoothed out bean mixture to a small frying pan with oil and add seasoning  Fry on high for 5 minutes or until the beans reduce and are thickened in texture. Once thickened add salt and pepper to taste. Serve along side enchiladas.

I really loved reading your blog. It was very well authored and easy to undertand. Unlike additional blogs I have read which are really not tht good. I also found your posts very interesting. In fact after reading, I had to go show it to my friend and he ejoyed it as well!


Our family absoulutely loves this recipe!  We have made it many, many times now.  I use tofu scrambles in place of the vegan chicken since we dont use that in our cooking.  We love how it turns out.  I always have homemade enchilada sauce on hand.  (Its super easy and takes about 5 minutes)  And I always have homemade vegetable broth on hand too (sodium free! when you make it yourself!)  So I can throw this together fairly quickly these days.  Our 10 year old and 5 year old beg for me to make these enchiladas! 


I went over this website and I believe you have a lot of wonderful information, saved to my bookmarks
