Using canned beans makes this low-fat recipe for enchiladas a snap to prepare. We chose kidney, garbanzo, pinto, and navy beans, but you can use any combination of beans that you like.



Three Bean Enchiladas
Recipe from 
Servings: 8
Prep Time: 25 mins
  • 16    6 inches   corn tortillas
  • 1    15 ounce can  red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1    15 ounce can  pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1    15 ounce can  navy beans or Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1    10 3/4ounce can  condensed cheddar cheese soup or nacho cheese soup
  • 1    10 ounce can  red or green enchilada sauce
  • 1    8 ounce can  tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2   cups   shredded Monterey Jack cheese or cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
  •     Sliced pitted ripe olives (optional)
  •     Chopped green sweet pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Stack tortillas and wrap tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minutes or until warm.
For filling, in a large bowl, stir together beans and soup. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the filling onto one edge of each tortilla. Starting at the edge with the filling, roll up tortilla. Arrange tortillas, seam sides down, in eight ungreased 10- to 12-ounce au gratin dishes or two ungreased 2-quart rectangular baking dishes.
For sauce, in a small bowl, stir together enchilada sauce and tomato sauce. Spoon over tortillas.
Bake, covered, about 20 minutes for the small dishes (about 30 minutes for the large dishes) or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted. If desired, sprinkle with olives and sweet pepper. Makes 8 servings.
