1 Place a large baking dish (approximately 20cm x 30cm) in oven and preheat to 200°C.
2 Spray a non-stick frying pan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Cook mince, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until just browned. Add beans, spinach and half the tomatoes. Cook for a further 2 minutes, or until heated through.
3 Remove baking dish from oven and spray with oil. Fill and roll each tortilla with a large spoonful of beef and bean mixture and place side-by-side in prepared baking dish. Spoon over remaining tomatoes and sprinkle with cheese.
4 Bake enchiladas for 10–15 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is melted. Top with sliced avocado, season with pepper and serve with salad leaves.
Make it gluten free: Check Mexican-style beans are gluten free and use gluten-free tortillas.
Find Mexican-flavoured beans in the baked bean aisle of supermarkets. You can use four-bean mix if you prefer.
