We won’t pretend to be the experts on enchiladas and they may not be the most authentic, but they are an easy dish to make for a crowd. Traditionally enchiladas are already gluten free as they are typically made with corn tortillas, however many recipes in the US will use flour tortillas instead. You can use corn tortillas here and make more, smaller enchiladas, or you can use larger grain or gluten free tortillas (like Siete brand). Adding beans to the filling ups the fiber and makes a hearty meal.
