Easy Enchiladas

This is a very easy recipe for enchiladas courtesy of stuff you can get at Trader Joe's.


  • 3 bell peppers
  • Optional: onion, garlic
  • Your favorite taco-like seasonings (I usually go for some chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, a bit of oregano)
  • 1 TBS oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 can re-fried beans
  • 8 small tortillas (I like the corn/wheat ones from TJs)
  • 12 oz jar enchilada sauce (I get the TJs one)
  • 12 oz bag shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend)


  1. If cooking immediately, preheat over to 350 degrees.

  2. Chop up bell pepper and cook in oil and taco seasonings until soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (Optionally, you can add onion and garlic to the bell pepper while it's cooking if you're into that.)

  3. Oil a 13x9 inch baking pan. On a dinner plate, place a tortilla and add 1/8 of your re-fried beans, some bell pepper pieces, and a sprinkling of cheese. Roll up the tortilla and place in the baking pan.

  4. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. You should fill the pan and use up all the refried beans, about 2/3 of the cheese, and most of the bell peppers. Sprinkle any remaining bell peppers on top.

  5. Pour the enchilada sauce over the tortilla wraps and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for ~30 minutes (or until bubbly and lightly browned on top). You can also put this in the refrigerator for several days and just bake it a little longer.

  7. Serve with sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and avocado.
