Roasted sweet potato black bean enchiladas covered in a homemade spicy enchilada sauce and stuffed with a flavorful vegan filling. We love these enchiladas any night of the week because they're delicious and ready in less than one hour!
Servings 8 enchiladas
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 3/4 cup cilantro, including stems, roughly chopped + 1/4 cup for garnish
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cook the brown rice according to package directions, set aside.
Enchilada Sauce - Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a small saucepan, add flour and whisk to combine over medium-low heat. Let cook for 2 minutes to cook out the flour taste. Add the vegetable stock, ancho chile powder, chili powder, and paprika. Stir to combine, bring to a low boil and reduce to a simmer. Let cook for 20 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
Sweet Potatoes - Peel and dice the sweet potatoes. Toss them in 2 Tbsp olive oil and seasoning mix (paprika, cumin, garam masala, salt, and pepper) until coated on all sides. Spread out on a parchment-lined tray, bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown on the edges.
Enchilada Filling - Saute onion in 1-2 Tbsp olive oil in a large pan over medium heat and cook for 5-8 minutes. Add the cooked rice, roasted sweet potatoes, black beans and cilantro to the pan. Add a few spoonfuls of the enchilada sauce into the pan and mix it together.
Add a few spoonfuls of the enchilada sauce to the bottom of the 9x13 casserole dish. Spread it around to cover the bottom. Fill 6 tortillas with the filling and place them side by side in the casserole dish. Top with more sauce (reserve 1/4 cup to use for serving). Bake for 10-15 minutes until the tortillas are lightly browned and hot all the way through.
Top each enchilada with more sauce, lettuce, tomato, avocado, cilantro and sour cream! Enjoy!
