for the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion , chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves , chopped
  • 1 jalapeno (option)
  • 1/2 pound tomatillos , husks removed (about 10)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth

for the filling

for the enchiladas


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • Heat the oil in a small saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and saute until onion is tender, about 3 minutes. Add the jalapeno, tomatillos, cumin, salt, and pepper and saute for another 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Pour in the broth, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cook for 10 minutes until the tomatillos are soft. Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend on high until creamy.
  • While the sauce is cooking, prepare the filling. Add the jackfruit, beans, salsa, and spices into a large bowl. Stir together until combined and set aside.
  • When ready to assemble the enchiladas, add 1/4 cup of sauce into the bottom of a baking dish. Spoon about 2 - 3 tablespoons of filling into the center of a tortilla and roll it up. Place the tortilla seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat until you've filled the dish.
  • Once filled, pour on the rest of the sauce and spread evenly across the tortillas. Sprinkle on the cheese.
  • Bake on the center rack for 25 - 30 minutes until the cheese is melted and the filling sounds bubbly. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Serve immediately and garnish with your fave toppings (I like avocado & cilantro!).
