While the original Mexican enchiladas are typically made with corn tortillas and filled with ingredients like beans, cheese, and meat, our Korean adaptation introduces a fusion of flavors. We substitute the corn tortillas with Korean-style pancakes called "jeon" and fill them with a delicious blend of marinated bulgogi beef, kimchi, and gochujang sauce. We alse have the original recipe for Enchiladas, so you can check it out.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Korean-style pancakes (jeon) — If you can't find pre-made pancakes, you can make your own by mixing flour, water, and salt to form a batter. Cook the pancakes in a non-stick pan until golden brown on both sides.
  • Gochujang sauce — Adjust the amount of gochujang sauce according to your spice preference. If you prefer a milder flavor, reduce the amount or mix it with a little soy sauce or honey for balance.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra kick of flavor, marinate the bulgogi beef overnight in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil.
  • If you prefer a vegetarian version, substitute the bulgogi beef with marinated tofu or sautéed mushrooms.
  • Serve the enchiladas with a side of steamed rice and a refreshing cucumber salad for a complete Korean meal experience.
  • Feel free to customize the filling by adding other ingredients such as sautéed vegetables or Korean pickles.
  • Leftover enchiladas can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheated in the oven or microwave.

Serving advice

Serve the Korean-style enchiladas hot, garnished with chopped green onions and sesame seeds. Accompany them with a side of steamed rice and a fresh cucumber salad for a balanced and satisfying meal.

Presentation advice

Arrange the enchiladas on a serving platter, placing them side by side. Sprinkle the chopped green onions and sesame seeds over the top for an attractive garnish. Serve with a small bowl of gochujang sauce on the side for dipping.
