Cheesy Vegetarian Tofu Enchiladas

A mouthwatering vegetarian enchilada recipe, these Cheesy Tofu Enchiladas are flavor packed, texture rich and so simple to make! Give these veggie enchiladas a go… they may just change your mind about tofu. This recipe is vegetarian and easily gluten free.

Lightly fried corn tortillas are traditionally used to make enchiladas. The oil softens the corn tortillas rendering them more playable and less likely to crack. I avoid this traditional preparation and instead approach enchilada prep using one of two alternatives for this recipe.

I love a flour/corn blend tortilla just the same. They’re easier to work with (no oil) and require no warming prior to rolling the enchiladas.

If using corn tortillas for this recipe, look for a brand that includes xantham gum because it makes the tortillas easier to roll with no cracking. I gently warm the tortillas instead of frying just prior to assembling.
