Add the veggie ground, salt ( 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp) and cook an until fully cooked – about 6 minutes. Add the adobo spice, pinto beans and mash the beans slightly with a fork to obtain a creamier texture. If the mixture is too thick add water 2 tbsp at a time until desired texture.  Taste the filling and adjust seasoning.

*Red peppers are spicy.

Place a corn tortilla in the enchilada sauce and place 3 tbsp to 1/4 cup filling in the tortilla. Roll up the tortilla* and place it in the baking dish. Repeat with all the tortillas.
