Enchilada Bake

An enchilada is a traditional Mexican dish. The name comes from the Spanish word enchilar - "to add chilli pepper to". The traditional enchilada sauce is dried red chillies soaked and ground into a sauce with other seasonings. Most enchiladas consist of a stuffed or layered tortilla, covered with a spicy sauce and baked. It is easy to make and packed full of flavour.


18 corn tortillas
350g crumbled vegetarian burger
2 medium cans enchilada sauce
2 medium cans drained pinto beans
2 chopped green onions
2 cups grated vegan cheddar cheese
½ cup diced green chillies
1 packet taco seasoning
2 cups finely crushed corn tortilla chips
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional hot chilli sauce

Cooking Instructions

  • Combine the burger crumbs in a small bowl and taco seasoning and set aside.
  • Coat a medium-sized casserole dish with vegetable oil.
  • In the casserole dish, spread some of the enchilada sauce. Then in layers, add 6 corn tortillas, all the pinto beans, ½ the green onions, 1/3 of the grated cheese, ½ the green chillies, more enchilada sauce, 6 more tortillas, all seasoned vegetarian burger crumbs, another 1/3 of the grated cheese, ½ the green chilies, more enchilada sauce, the last 6 tortillas, more enchilada sauce, and the final 1/3 of the grated cheese.
