  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). In a bowl, toss diced potatoes together with cumin, chili powder, salt, and ketchup, and place in an oiled baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, boil tomatillos and chopped onion in water to cover for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, puree with half of the cilantro until smooth.
  3. Fry tortillas individually in a small amount of hot oil until soft.
  4. Mix potatoes together with pinto beans, 1/2 cheese, and 1/2 cilantro. Fill tortillas with potato mixture, and roll up. Place seam side down in an oiled 9x13 inch baking dish. Spoon tomatillo sauce over enchiladas, and spread remaining cheese over sauce. Bake for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

I loved this recipe! We followed it almost exactly. Even my husband, who is a big meat eater thought it tasted great.

These enchiladas are AWESOME! One caveat: Do NOT put the hot tomatillo/onion/cooking water mix into a blender! It will explode -- seriously! I substituted red jalapeno salsa for the ketchup ...

This truly was delicious. I made many modifications, however. I made my salsa with 4 tomatoes (the grocery store didn't have tomatillos this week - hey, it's Canada!), 1 medium onion, 1 jalapen...

i'm a vegetarian, but i'm also lactose-intolerant (lots of interesting things happen to you after you have a baby, consider yourself warned ;) ), so i made these without the queso. i know, howev...
