This homemade potato and cheese enchilada recipe by Simply Mama Cooks on YouTube is an easy meatless meal idea. I’ve never made enchiladas before, but it would be nice to try this recipe because a lot of my friends are vegetarians so it would be a vegetarian-friendly meal. I love how cheesy the enchiladas are and I know sometimes when starch is mixed with cheese, there’s an extra cheesiness to it. Simply Mama Cooks has so many amazing homemade recipes on her channel that are beginner-friendly. I love all of her videos because they are so easy to follow along with and super flavorful.



  • 1 lb potatoes
  • 1/2 medium onion (sauteed)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 10 to 12 oz pepper jack cheese
  • 14 corn tortillas
  • 9×13 inch baking dish

Enchilada chili gravy sauce:

  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp chicken bouillon
  • 2 cups water


First, start off by boiling the potatoes. Rinse them and add them whole into the pot. Cook until they are fork-tender. Peel the skin off and mash them with a fork. In a large bowl, add the mashed potatoes, sauteed onions, garlic powder, salt to taste, black pepper, and smoked paprika. Mix together. Then, add the shredded cheese.

Next, once the enchiladas are rolled in the baking dish, pour the sauce all over the enchiladas and top off with cheese. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F. for about 35 to 45 minutes covered in foil. Let them sit for about 15 minutes before serving.
