  7. Once your sauce has thickened you can turn off the stove.

  • Mexican cheese for sprinkling 

Directions 

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 8×11 baking dish with oil spray. 
  3. Scoop your bean mixture into your tortilla and sprinkle cheese. 
  4. Fold in the sides of your tortilla and roll it up.
  5. Place the tortilla seam side down into the dish, and repeat the process until your bean mixture is done.
  6. Pour your enchilada sauce over all of the enchiladas in your dish making sure the sauce is evenly distributed. 
  7. Sprinkle cheese on top of the enchiladas. 
  8. Cover the enchiladas with foil and place in the oven. 
  9. Bake the enchiladas with tin foil covering the pan for about 20-25 minutes (sauce should be bubbling).
  10. Once it’s bubbling take the tinfoil off and let the top brown for about 5-10 mins. 
  11. Take it out of the oven and serve.
