When I first came to United States, my husband and I used to frequently visit Mexican restaurants. The reason for this was, Mexican and Indian cuisines make of similar spices and herbs in their dishes, and as I was a vegetarian then it allowed me to try different items from the menu. I have tried to replicate the enchilada style burrito that I had as the very first Mexican meal here in the U.S. This was served with pica de gallo, salsa, lettuce, sour cream and guacamole. Yes, it is quite a heavy meal. A single enchilada burrito is filling on its own. So the sides are completely optional. I will share the recipes for each side soon.

Enchilada Style Burritos

I have used store bought red enchilada sauce for this recipe. Always taste the sauce and use it as desired. You can also substitute the rice and black beans in the recipe by one single black beans rice.

Recipe Notes

 

  • Also use meat of your choice if desired.
  • You can use store bought tortillas for the recipe.
  • You can also substitute the rice and black beans by one single black beans rice.
  • I have used jasmine rice for this recipe. Use any rice of your choice but see that you saute it first to get the nutty flavor.
  • I have used mexican cheese blend that consists of shredded Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Asadero, Queso Blanco. You can use any one cheese or a mixture of all.
  • You can use substitute black beans with pinto beans.
  • Nicely drain and wash the canned black beans to reduce the sodium.
  • If using dried black beans :
  1. Soak the black beans in water for 3 hours adding little baking soda and drain them. Adding soda makes it cook faster.
  2. Cook the black beans in pan or pressure cooker for one whistle. Add salt while cooking.

    I was surprised to see that alot of reviews that I had read, so far, the people hadn’t actually tried the recipe yet LOL! But I understand all the excitement, I’ve tried this recipe with my family again and again. I loved that the burrito wasn’t overly loaded with spices because the enchilada sauce packs a lot of punch on its own! Overall the recipe was amazing, thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

  69. I love the flavours of Mexican burritos and other dishes, as you say they have something in common with the spicing used in India. I also like how you made these in the single-use metal trays, so I’m wondering whether you can freeze and then reheat / cook from frozen?

  70. Love burritos, it is ideal for a brunch or for weekend. Yours looks so delish, feel like grabbing one.


  71. This looks really really good. I love Mexican food, I had the best Mexican food ever last year when i went to New York and it looked exactly like this!

    This is the best meatless burrito recipe I have ever tried. So good, that I made it again the following week using a can of S&W pinto beans with chipotle instead of the black beans, and that tweak was even more tasty. This recipe is a winner.
