This recipe can easily be adapted to vegan or gluten-free lifestyles. To make these black bean and corn enchiladas gluten-free, simply switch out the flour tortillas for corn tortillas. Check the taco seasoning packet and enchilada sauce to look out for hidden ingredients that could contain gluten. To make this recipe vegan, swap for your favorite vegan cheese. To prevent the tortillas from falling apart, throw them in the microwave for a few seconds to heat them up. They will be slightly more pliable and easier to work with, and will be less likely to break when rolling them up. These enchiladas will last for 3-4 days tightly wrapped in the fridge. However, they taste best fresh, as the tortillas will soften the longer you store them.
