“A great vegetarian main dish that can be spiced up with the addition of jalapenos to either or both sauce and filling.”

  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.

These are fantastic. Much easier also if you use a "salsa verde" in place of the whole tomatillo/blender thing. I also made them with Monterey Jack once instead of queso fresco, and that was good too. I usually end up putting a red enchilada sauce (or tortilla chowder from trader joe's) on top, so they are a bit saucier. Without it they seem a bit dry, but overall they are great, and even my 3 young kids like them. Not as time consuming as they might seem, either.



If anyone is looking for a variation to this recipe; I didn't have time to soften the tortillas in oil so instead I lined the 9x13 pan with the corn tortillas then I spread the bean/potato mixture on top of that and then I layed down another layer of corn tortillas. I poured on the green sauce (which is delicious!) and then I crumbled the queso fresco on top of that. ¡Muy fácil! My husband loved this recipe and next time I'm going to add some ground turkey....



Good flavor, but would not make again as per recipe. If I make it again, I would definitely add sauce to the potato/bean mixture because the insides were dry. And I would also change the cheese to a cheddar/jack combo or mexican four cheese blend, or something. The queso fresco didn't have a good melting quality to it. But I liked the flavors, thanks for the recipe.
