Our Simple Butternut Squash Enchiladas are a little messy, but so delicious. These vegetarian enchiladas are packed with flavor and heat up nicely the next day if you have leftovers (you probably won’t!). You can change up the recipe by adding spinach or bell peppers. We like to garnish ours with jalapeño for an extra kick of heat.

To make these enchiladas vegan, leave out the cheese. We have also tried making them gluten free by using Siete tortillas. These tortillas are amazing. They can be ordered on amazon or found in the frozen section of some grocery stores. Siete tortillas are dairy free, soy free, grain free, paleo, and vegan friendly. They are kept frozen and then refrigerated. I have found that they are a little bit harder to roll into an enchilada, but definitely a good option, especially if you have any sort of gluten sensitivity, wheat allergy, or Celiac Disease.

Course Main Course
Servings 4 people


  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 1 15 oz Black Beans
  • 1.5 10 oz Enchilada Sauce
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Vidalia Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 Medium Tortillas
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • 1 Jalapeno (optional)


  • Prepare the butternut squash by taking off the skin, removing the pulp, and slicing the remaining squash into small chunks. Chop the onion and garlic.
  • Over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet.
  • Next, add the diced onion, butternut squash, and garlic.
  • Once the onion is translucent and the squash can be pierced with a fork (about 15 minutes), add the can of black beans. Add salt and pepper if desired. *if you put a lid over the skillet it will help the squash to soften due to the condensation.
  • Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Next, add ½ cup of shredded cheese to the mix and stir.
  • Meanwhile, pour one 10 oz can of enchilada sauce into a 9×11 baking dish.
  • Grab a spoon, take a large scoop of the enchilada mix, and wrap it in a tortilla. Place the wrapped enchilada into the baking dish and repeat with the remaining mix and wraps.
  • Pour a half can of enchilada sauce over the top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese.
  • Cook enchiladas at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove and top with cilantro and jalapeno for a spicy kick!

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t fail me as much as this particular one.
    I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I genuinely believed
    you would probably have something helpful to say.
    All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
