Kaylee Pauley‘s Butternut Squash Black Bean Enchiladas completely hit the spot! The natural sweetness of the roasted butternut squash perfectly balances the savoriness of the beans, onions, and garlic. Then the flavors really come alive as the veggies meld with the Mexican spices and vegan cheddar. Let’s be honest, more than one spoonful disappears before ever making it to the tortillas.

7. Pumpkin Chickpea Enchiladas

Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean that you have to skimp on flavor. Melanie Sorrentino‘s simple Refried Bean Enchiladas are packed with refried beans (which you can make oil-free), tangy black olives, and green salsa, then covered with spicy sauce and baked until warm and bubbly. They’re served with a simple side of rice seasoned with cilantro and summer squash.

Gabrielle St. Claire‘s Breakfast Enchiladas With Poblano Cream may be for breakfast, but you’ll want them for lunch and dinner, too. Each flour tortilla is stuffed with a cheesy tofu and vegan sausage scramble, Shiitake bacon, and a spicy poblano cream sauce. Plus, it’s topped with vegetables, more sauce, and avocado! Best part is, you can put the leftover poblano sauce to good use for lunches, dinners, or even another Mexican-inspired breakfast.

10. Chorizo Spiced Potato Enchiladas

Zsu Dever‘s Chorizo Spiced Potato Enchiladas are really tasty! Potatoes are tossed in a blend of hot spices and wrapped up in a warm tortilla with black beans and fresh herbs. They’re also topped with a spicy sauce and a creamy vegan cheese sauce. The red sauce is simple and easy, the potatoes are mix-and-bake and the beans and greens are minimally processed as the flavor is all provided by the chorizo spices. Simple to make, although not completely fuss-free, this is well worth the minimal effort.
