When you’re entertaining, enchiladas never fail to impress. They’re super tasty and can be made with all kinds of filling – from chicken to beef and beans if you’re veggie – but make sure you use a high quality oil too.

Mazola’s corn oil is 100% pure and helps bring out the flavours of the ingredients and seasonings. We’ve added minced beef (5% fat) and black-eyed beans to really turn up the taste on these shareable Mexican crowd-pleasers.

Topped with black olives, grated cheese, chopped coriander and salsa to add flavour and texture, these skinny beef enchiladas are perfect for an alfresco lunch in the sun.

 

Ingredients

  • Skinny beef enchiladas
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 3 tbsp of Mazola Corn Oil
  • 500g minced beef (5% fat)
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 pepper, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp of fajita seasoning
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 can of black eyed beans (kidney beans work too)
  • 30ml of water
  • For toppings:
  • Black olives, sliced
  • 75g low fat cheddar cheese, grated
  • 20g chopped coriander
  • One lime, cut into 6 wedges and salsa (optional) to serve

Method

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees and grease an baking tin big enough to take all of the rolled tortillas.

  • In a frying pan, warm the Mazola Corn Oil to soften the chopped onion, pepper and minced beef to make the filling. Turn up the heat to brown the mince.

  • Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir well and cook for a five more minutes.

  • Lay out each tortilla and fill with some of the minced beef mixture. Roll up into a sausage shape and place in the baking tin. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used.

  • Once they are all snug in the tin, sprinkle over the cheese and olives and bake for 15-20 minutes until the topping is golden and starting to crisp.

  • Finally, sprinkle over the coriander and serve with a lime wedge and salsa (if using) then tuck in!

Top Tip

Mazola Corn Oil is lower in saturated fat than olive oil and coconut oil, and it has a high smoke point for frying. To find out more about Mazola’s range of oils, and discover more recipes, visit mazola.co.uk
