    Pretty good, not difficult. Next time I will add some peppers and avocado. I halved the recipe and it still turned out. Would be nice with an herb salad.

    I really liked this. I made my own 'bean mixture', adding corn, red bell pepper, onion and spinach, so only roughly based myself on this recipe. I also used a vegan feta that I like, as I don't live in the US. It was relatively easy and I would definitely make it again!

    My family loves it. We typically we don’t like to use tomato sauce but you can’t really tell with this recipe. It does take a bit of time to make but it’s worth it.

    Absolutely amazing! I added chopped romaine lettuce into taco lettuce and added to the top for crunch and perfect!

    Outstanding! My wife isn't into stuff like this and scoffed at it until she tried it and then devoured it. My 3yr old son is used to eating junk and turns down everything that isn't and he devoured an entire large bowl. Of course i thought it was great!

    I’ve made this recipe 3 or 4 times now, always ended up really really delicious. My mods to it: -any cheese will do not just vegan (I prefer mozzarella) -can never get the beans to strain and give me the sauce, so I just use less tomato sauce and put the chunk I didn’t use in a sauce pan with oregano, garlic, basil, onion powder, sugar, salt, and a small can of tomato paste until mall the flavours blend What surprises me the most is that there is no heat in the jalapeño.

    This was very good. I did add a 1/2 small can of diced tomatoes with green chili’s to the “sauce” and then topped the enchiladas with the other 1/2.

    A little soggy, but all the flavors blended wonderfully! I used a “Follow Your Heart” brand shredded cheddar, honestly, I didn’t care much for it. Dairy free cheese is always a challenge. I added some corn I had left over from what wasn’t needed in the Spanish rice, turned out very well! Will DEFINATELY make it again, with different cheese.

    My husband and I were nervous about going vegan this week. And to be honest, I only chose this recipe because of all of the rave reviews. TBH, y’all did not disappoint. It’s incredibly delicious!

    It came out excellent! I made fresh tortillas & added this recipe to make dinner. Since we have kids, we decided not to add Jalapenos, however wehave plenty of cheese & plan to add sour cream when its done.

    Used whole wheat tortillas instead of corn and didnt have chili so I used cajun: turned out pretty good! would omit the cilantro next time but thats just because Im not a huge fan of it.
