Melt in your mouth enchiladas…
Yep, these are those.
I’ve made all kinds of enchiladas over the years. But never with a random mix of beans like this. Hurst Beans sent me a few bags of beans to cook with and experiment with…and it took me all over 2 seconds to know that I’d use the Cajun 15 Bean Soup mix to make some Cajun-kickin’ enchiladas.
The beans are cooked in the Cajun seasoning packet, and they soak up the Cajun goodness…that then comes out in your enchiladas.
These did not last long in our house…between my husband and I…we had the pan cleared out after a lunch and a dinner. And we ended up fighting (nicely!) over the last 2 enchiladas. Because he got the last of the Creamy Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas, I got the last of these.
Cook the beans. Then add to a bowl and mix with diced tomatoes, taco seasoning, and some Mexican cheese.
Be sure to drain the tomatoes well. We want to avoid runny enchiladas.
Toss it all together.
Spoon into corn tortillas, roll and place into baking dish, seam side down.
Spread the tomato sauce on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Ready for the oven…and then for you to devour!

OMG this is yummy! I have a very picky eater for a husband and even more of a picky eater for a 3 yr old. I made this on Sunday for dinner last night. My husband cleaned his plate and said it was really good and how much he liked it. My vegan neighbors loved it. Their kids ate almost all of it. I sent what I coul dnot fit into my pan home with my brother. He sent me a text last night say how good it was while I was waiting on ours to warm up in the oven. So far many comlipents. It is even better reheated for lunch the next day. I will so make this again. Thanks!

Is this spicy at all? I’m thinking of making this for a group Sunday night, but I’m not sure if the “cajun” would be something everyone would like…
Got lazy and didn’t feel like rolling them so doubled the sauce and make an enchilada lasagna style dish. Turned out great and was super quick. Family loved it.
Is there something wrong with the site? I am trying to locate the recipe for the Cajun Hurt Bean Enchiladas but I am not able to get to it…

I love enchiladas and was thrilled to try 15-bean Enchiladas! Instead of the tomato-based sauce in your recipe I found a great recipe for making your own Enchilada sauce on the cooking blog Chickens in the Road . It’s cheap and delicious! I just cut the chili powder in half and used chicken broth. Next time I will probably double it for this. Also made my own Cajun seasoning and used the taco-flavored tomato sauce to mix in with the beans. Used a helluva-lot of cheese but came out delicious! More work, but delicious!

Are Hurst Beans a regional product? I live in the western suburbs of Chicago and I’ve never seen them in the grocery stores around here.
