If you put sliced mushrooms in a salad, I will eat around them, and so will my kids. But dice the mushrooms up and add them to a dish and we will devour them every.single.time. Which is a good thing! Despite all the time we spend outside, my oldest son and I have low levels of Vitamin D. In addition to a prescription, my doctor gave me a list of natural sources of Vitamin D and mushrooms were, in my opinion, the most delicious option on the list.
Mushrooms also make a filling, low-calorie substitute for meat in recipes. Combine mushrooms with beans and you have a hearty meal that will even satisfy a teenage boy with a hollow leg.
I was really tempted after sauteeing the mushrooms with onions and peppers to just grab a fork and chow down, but I promised my family an enchilada casserole, so I exercised self-control.
I added cooked beans, frozen corn, and homemade enchilada sauce to the mushroom mixture and layered it between tortilla pieces to create an enchilada casserole that is ready in under 30 minutes.
If you have someone in your family, like my daughter, who isn’t crazy about mushrooms, I suggest using white button mushrooms, because they are mild and take on the flavor of the other ingredients. After eating this casserole, my daughter said, “It’s fantabulous! And you can quote me on that”.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 oz. white button mushrooms, diced
- 1 cup diced onions
- ½ cup diced peppers
- 1 can or 1¾ cups cooked black beans
- 1 can or 1¾ cups frozen corn
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons enchilada sauce, divided
- 15 - 18 corn tortillas
- 1 -2 cups Mexican cheese
- Heat oil in a skillet. Add mushrooms, onion, and peppers. cook until the onions are translucent. Remove from heat.
- Add beans, corn, and ½ cup enchilada sauce.
- Use a pizza cutter to cut the tortillas in fourths.
- Spread 2 tablespoons enchilada sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish.
- Layer ⅓ of the tortillas pieces on the bottom of the casserole dish.
- Spread half of the mushroom-bean mixture over the tortillas.
- Repeat the tortilla and mushroom-bean mixtures.
- Place the remaining tortilla pieces over the mushroom-bean mixture.
- Spread ½ cup of enchilada sauce over the tortillas.
- Sprinkle cheese over the enchilada sauce.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

This can easily be made gluten-free, too! My family is very into black beans and corn anyway, so definitely going to add try this out. I plan to use my fave (cheap and gluten-free store-brand) enchilada sauce and Mission brand corn tortillas (which are GF and produced in a totally GF facility, besides being my fave even before going GF and one of the cheapest). ~ I will probably have to make a double batch of the mushroom mixture though, because we are crazy for mushrooms. 😉
Being a mushroom lover, this really appeals to me. Fantabulous for sure! Adding to my list of meatless meals.
What a great batch of enchiladas! I love the combination of black beans and mushrooms!

I did not enjoy mushrooms when I was younger but now I love them. I often use them to replace meat in dishes as well. Your Mushroom and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole looks wonderful!
Delicious black bean enchilada casserole.
