Vegan Buffalo Jackfruit Enchiladas
Today I am bringing you two of my favorites - tangy buffalo flavor and jackfruit!
Can I say that a third favorite is an enchilada?
This the time of year, when it is cold and dark by four in the afternoon, I make enchiladas. A lot.
Enchiladas are easy. Fairly quick. Versatile. We love them.
and last but not least? Breakfast leftovers!
Oh yes I do.
The tangy spice of buffalo sauce goes surprisingly well with a green enchilada sauce. I have made these Vegan Buffalo Jackfruit Enchiladas many times, and all but one batch had green sauce.
One batch had red. That red sauce still made great breakfast leftovers the next day, for sure. We prefer the green sauce for most enchiladas, and especially these.
Also! If you are making my Easy Green Enchilada Sauce recipe, you might notice an absence of tomatillos in the ingredient list. I sometimes have a difficult time finding tomatillos.
Please, if you can find them? Add them! I make this sauce with tomatillos as often as I can.

- Pour about ½ cup enchilada sauce into bottom of square (8 or 9 inch) baking dish, enough to cover surface completely.
- Assemble enchiladas: spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese down middle of tortilla. Add several tablespoons Spanish rice - buffalo jackfruit mixture to tortilla. Roll and place in baking dish. Repeat with remaining four tortillas.
- Top enchiladas with remaining enchilada sauce*. Using a fork or spatula, move enchiladas around so sauce coats each enchilada, in between.

These are so incredible and comforting, reminds me of my mexican roots!
It took me a while to like jackfruit but now, I figured that as long as I'm the one adding the flavor, then its a perfect meat replacement. Love how you used it in these enchiladas...especially since its spicy.
I have never tried jackfruit, but these look SO good! Thanks for the recipes.
