Chorizo Queso Enchilada Ingredients

Servings: 13


  • 3/4 Cup Good Foods™ Plant-Based Queso 
  • 13, 6” Corn Tortillas, Soft  
  • 2 ½ Cups Chorizo Filling 
  • 2 Tablespoons Neutral Oil 
  • 2 Cups Enchilada Sauce 
  • ¼ Cup Cilantro, Chopped 


1. Grease a 1/2 hotel pan with pan spray. 

2. Add 3/4 cup enchilada sauce to bottom of pan, spread to coat.  

3. In a saute pan over medium heat, lightly fry each tortilla (7-10 seconds per side). This increases the tortilla pliability and helps them not absorb all of the sauce. 

4. As tortillas come out of the pan, fill with ~2.5 Tbsp filling, roll and place into the pan fold side down.  

5. Repeat this 13 times or until hotel pan is full. 

6. Top enchiladas with remaining sauce then top with queso.  

7. Tightly cover pan with foil and bake at 375F for 25 minutes.  

8. Serve garnished with cilantro.
