  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Over medium heat, add the oil to a large skillet. Add in the onions and saute until soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes, stirring often so they don't burn.
  • Add in meatless crumbles and stir together. Then add all the spices (chili powder down to salt and pepper). Stir together again. Add tomato sauce and stir, then cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
    *You should have a fairly juicy meatless mixture similar to a juicy taco meat mixture; however depending on the brand of meatless crumbles some need a little more moisture. Add vegetable stock a little at a time to have a juicy mixture. Alternatively, if your mixture is too liquidly, add some cornstarch (1 tbsp at a time) to soak up the liquid as need.
  • Add 5 corn tortillas to a microwave safe plate. Drape a wet paper towel over it and microwave for 30-60 seconds to make the tortillas pliable.
  • Lay out your tortillas. Spray each side lightly with oil and add 2-3 tbsp of mixture down the middle, then sprinkle cheese. Roll up and place seam side down.
  • Repeat last two steps until you have no mixture remaining.
  • Bake In oven for 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook for another 5 minutes or until cheese has mostly melted and tortillas are golden brown and crispy.
    *Can also do the same process in an air fryer. Same temp for 3-4 minutes each side.
