Avocado Black Bean Enchiladas

Hello beauties.


I just love green. It’s my all-time favorite color for… well just about anything. Shoes, sheets, toe nail polish (I only paint my toes, never my fingers) palm trees and I’m crazy for the dyed-green gerber daises. Also when it comes to food? Some of my favorite foods are green. Limes. (for sweet or savory, doesn’t matter) Jalapeños. (I eat em plain!) And green enchilada sauce. With a straw. I love that stuff.  Oh and avocados. Duh!

Avocado Black Bean Enchiladas

I feel like the avocados are really the star of these enchiladas. The black beans though are a beautiful accent to that creamy avocado in every bite. Throw those two in with a few seasonings, roll up those tortillas, cover it all with green enchilada sauce, pop em in the oven. 15 minutes later you’ll be sinking your teeth into these tasty enchiladas. Oh and did I mention they’re healthy? Yeah they are. Just a bonus.

  • 9 6-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 avocados, sliced or diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 2 10-ounce cans green chile enchilada sauce
  • 1 7-ounce can diced green chiles
  • 1/2 cup shredded mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)


  • Preheat oven to 400. Place enchilada sauce and green chiles in a medium sauce pan and simmer over medium-high heat while you prepare the enchiladas.
  • Add black beans, avocados, onions, garlic salt, cumin, chile powder, cilantro and optional tomatoes to a large bowl and stir to combine. Add about 1 cup of sauce into the bottom of a large baking dish. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of black bean-avocado mixture into the center of each tortilla, roll it up tightly and place in prepared dish on top of sauce. Lay each side by side, seam side down.
  • Pour remaining sauce over rolled enchiladas. Sprinkle cheese evenly over enchiladas and top with any left over filling. Bake 15-20 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Serve warm.

They look delicious! Can they be frozen?

    Yep! Wrap them in plastic wrap, then put them in an airtight container in the freezer!

This looks delicioso! One quick question. What is the spice level of this? I’ve got some vegetarian friends coming over and they don’t like too much heat. Wasn’t sure about the green chili sauce. Thanks!!

Can you use corn tortillas instead of flour?

Do you hunk you could use ro-tel instead of diced chilis?

    Yep you sure could!

These were great! We used corn tortillas and made 10 enchiladas in a 9×13 pan. We added minced fresh jalapeño to 1/2 of them. Definitely a keeper!!

What about adding shredded chicken…would I need to change anything?

    Nope, shouldn’t need to change anything!

What is the calorie count on these beauties? It’s important that I track it, but just HAVE to try these! Thanks!

What is the calorie count on this recipe per serving? 2nd request?!!

I’m guessing you don’t drain or rinse the canned chiles and beans?

Do you need to drain and rinse black beans?

    Yes, drain and rinse. 🙂

5 stars
This recipe was absolutely delicious! Just a hint of heat, not too hot. Definitely will make this again. I added about 1/2 cup of leftover diced roasted sweet potatoes, otherwise followed recipe exactly.

These enchiladas are fantastic!!! Tangy, creamy, beany- all of the things we crave. My husband kept eating the mixed ingredients while we were assembling and absolutely loved the finished dish. Great job!!
