Sorry, I've been busy : (

Enfrijoladas are one of my favorite dishes ever.
The usual filling is shredded chicken, but this time I opted for vegan cheese instead of tofu or some kind of mock meat.


1 1/2 cup mashed or refried beans
1 tsp. Guajillo chile powder
Pinch ground cumin
Garlic salt to taste
Water, veggie broth or unsweetened non-dairy milk (enough to get a creamy consistency)

4 corn tortillas
Vegan cheese or your choice of protein to fill the tortillas (feel free to use more beans, hehe)
Oil for frying

Shredded lettuce
Vegan Cheese for sprinkling
Hot sauce or salsa
Diced onion or whatever you like

Blend the first five ingredients and if your blender isn't cooperating, use more liquid.
Heat the bean mixture in a pan.

Heat the oil in a pan to fry the tortillas. Note: I used cooking spray.
Fry the tortillas (one by one). Just remember that you're aiming for a warm tortilla, not a crunchy tostada.

Put a tortilla in the bean mixture pan and cover it with that beany goodness.
Serve it, fill it and fold it like a taco.
Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Sprinkle and garnish with whatever you fancy or have on hand.
I used shredded lettuce (no kidding...), habanero hot sauce and more daiya.
I discovered that daiya is perfect as a replacement for cotija cheese, but FYH is better as a filling.

Edited to add:
Damn.. I just noticed that many of my posts say stuff like "this is one of my favorite dishes ever". That must change !
I'm not saying it anymore, hah.
