Vegan Chicken Enchilada Bake (WFPB)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


I get asked a lot about what recipe I believe is best to introduce others to this way of eating. And if you are new here, this way of eating is whole food plant based, which is basically a health promoting vegan diet. So when I get asked what I recommend as the best meal to share with others, my easy enchilada bake seems to come up over and over again. I think it really comes down to how easy it is to prepare and the fact that it is so filling. I know that when I was helping to transition my mom and dad to this way of eating, enchilada bakes where a regular meal on the weekly menu. In this enchilada bake I add in a can of shredded jackfruit which I think adds a wonderful texture to an already delicious dish.




Here’s what you will need!

-3 cups cooked brown rice (
-1 can of jackfruit (15-20 oz)
-1 cup cooked black beans (
-1 cup cooked red beans
-1 cup sweet corn (fresh or frozen)
-12 corn tortilla shells

Enchilada Sauce:
-3 cups water
-6 oz tomato paste
-2 tbs chili powder
-2 tsp garlic powder
-2 tsp onion powder
-1 tsp ground cumin

A friend recommended this recipe for me. I cant wait to try it! I may switch out the jackfruit with tvp or soy curls. Not a fan of the jackfruit but I'm sure it will end up ok. Thank you!

Double You says:

I made this last night but I used oyster mushrooms instead of jackfruit. We threw some jalapenos in also. Top notch this was great.

Kimberly Kiley says:

You will never know how happy I am that I found you. Thank you for sharing the story of your dad!

Sage says:

I made this today and holy cow! It was so good. This is the first recipe of yours that I've tried making and all I can say is I'm hooked! I'm going to buy your book for sure. My partner who has been cravvvvvving something enchilada flavoured since we went vegan 2 years ago is so pleased with this dish! I also love how this recipe makes so many servings, I'm so sick of recipes being only 2 – 3 servings, I don't want to have to cook an entire dish every single day. Also, I served this with my homemade cashew sour cream which isn't very low fat but wow, what a combo! Thank you Gabriel, you are a genius!

Captain Jule says:

Jackfruit isn't available where o live. How could I replace it? Oyster mushrooms?

C vanP says:

It was delicious but too spicy for my taste, I will put in less chili powder, but I will definitely make it again!

What brand of jackfruit do you have in the can? Can I order it from Amazon or get it at Whole Foods? Did you say it was green? Thanks for the info in advance!
