Freezer Friendly Bean & Cheese Enchiladas

Yes, more enchilada recipes. Because I have {what feels like} a bazillion corn tortillas in my freezer from all of the Costco Freezer Meal Plans. Enchiladas are so delicious, they freeze and reheat beautifully.

So here’s another freezer friendly enchilada recipe for you.

And I took a photo of them as I would put them into the freezer. Prepare everything, add the sauce on top, then the cheese….then to the freezer! {Use a disposable baking pan if you don’t have extra glass baking dishes!}

Freezer Friendly Bean & Cheese Enchiladas

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Servings: 4 persons


  • 15 oz. can refried beans (or use homemade slow cooker refried beans!)
  • 4 oz. can green chilies, drained
  • 3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese, divided
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups homemade enchilada sauce
  • Side dish ideas ~ salad, avocado slices, Tex-Mex rice


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash together the refried beans and green chilies. Mix in about 1 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese in with the beans. Spoon the bean mixture evenly into the 12 corn tortillas. Roll the enchiladas and place them seam side down in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Repeat until bean mixture and tortillas are used up.
  • Pour the enchilada sauce over the top. Then top with the remaining shredded cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cheese has melted on top.
  • To Freeze: Freeze before baking and cover the baking dish with foil.
  • To Thaw: Let thaw in the fridge overnight.
  • To Reheat: If cooking from partially thawed, add 15-20 minutes to the baking time and bake covered for 20 minutes, then uncovered until heated through.
