Skillet Enchiladas (Vegan)

Seriously easy 1-pan Skillet Enchiladas are ready to eat in less than 30 minutes! Enjoy all the flavors of enchiladas without the work.
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 30 mins
Servings: 6 servings


  • 12 ounce package impossible ground meat see notes for options
  • 1 medium onion, chopped small
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 small corn tortillas or 4-5 medium flour tortillas, cut into strips
  • 15- ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn I used frozen
  • 19 ounces enchilada sauce vegan friendly
  • 1-2 cups shredded vegan cheese

Optional toppings


  • Heat a large cast iron pan or other skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the vegan beef and diced onion and cook for about 10 minutes, breaking it into pieces and stirring frequently.
  • Now add the garlic and salt, and stir for about a minute.
  • Add the cut up corn tortilla pieces, black beans, corn and enchilada sauce. Stir it up, then cover and reduce the heat to low for about 10 minutes.
  • Uncover, sprinkle on the cheese, then cover again and remove from heat. Let it sit for a few minutes so the cheese can melt.
  • Serve with Vegan Sour Cream, chopped green onions and sliced black olives, if desired.


  1. I love using Impossible ground beef here, but you can use Beyond meat crumbles, Gardein or any other brand you prefer. For a different option, make my Vegan Ground Beef from Vegan Nachos or even this Cauliflower Walnut Taco Meat. Or simply add 2 extra cans of beans.
  2. Gluten free? Use corn tortillas and make sure there is no gluten in the enchilada sauce. 
  3. Nut free? Easy! Use a nut free vegan cheese. 
  4. If you don’t want to buy vegan shredded cheese (or can’t find it), try make Vegan Nacho Cheese or Shredded Vegan Mozzarella
