What do I need to make this Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

This  Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne is really simple to make.

You’ll need a

24cm spring form cake tin like this one from Amazon.

We also used a Deiss Grater to finely grate the cheddar. This grater makes a little cheese go a very long way, but watch out – It’s VERY sharp!

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! We used the Sunflower one for this Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne recipe, and it was fab!

How many Syns are in this Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne?

This Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne is, as the name suggests, Syn Free!

You’ll need to use your Healthy Extra A, and Healthy Extra B to keep this recipe Syn Free – otherwise it works out at just under 12 Syns per portion.

You could split this between 8 portions rather than 4 to use less Healthy Extra’s, and serve with some extra accompaniments, like these Syn Free Rustic Potato Wedges!

You can make this Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne as spicy or mild as you like – just add extra chilli powder for more of a kick!

How do I make this Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne?

Step 1

Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne | Slimming World

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Spray a 24cm spring form tin with Frylight and line the bottom with greaseproof paper.

Step 2

Spray a large saucepan with Frylight and add the minced beef to brown on a moderate heat for 5 minutes. While the meat is browning, chop the onion, courgette and peppers, and grate the carrot.

Add the veg to the meat and mix well. Turn down the heat and add the kidney beans (in chilli sauce), sweetcorn, spices, oxo cubes, tomato puree, garlic granules, worcestershire sauce and passata to the saucepan and mix well.

Leave to simmer for 25 minutes without covering.

Step 4

Once the meat has cooked, and the sauce has reduced, you need to layer up the dish.

Place a Weight Watchers wrap at the bottom of the lined and Frylight-sprayed spring form tin. Place a layer of the meat and veg on top. Continue this pattern, ending with a layer of meat.

Step 5

Finely grate the reduced fat cheddar over the top, and tear the mozzarella, spreading the pieces evenly over the whole area. Sprinkle with a little paprika to add colour. Place in the oven for 25 minutes until the cheese is golden.

Step 6

Remove from the oven. Leave to cool slightly in the tin for 10 minutes (don’t worry, it’ll still be hot when you eat it!).

Step 7

Once cooled slightly, run a knife around the edge, unclasp the spring form tin and carefully lift the tin away. Cut a wedge, and serve immediately!

    1. Hi Catie
      We re-use a standard recipe template when writing up the recipes and this heading was overlooked when the Enchilada Lasagne recipe was written up. All sorted now though. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

  1. Just want to say that I absolutely love your recipes and thankyou for sharing them! I’ve pretty much cooked all of them and have never been disappointed! I use all of your lovely recipes weekly and my family love them! I get excited when I see a new one to try! 😂. And I’ve just seen this one, which I’ll be cooking this week! I can’t wait for your book to come out! I will definitely be buying!!! 😃😃😃😃

    1. Hi Tracey
      The recipe uses 4 HEB choices (the wraps) and a total of 4 HEA choices (2 portions each of the two different types of cheese.) It serves 4 people, therefore a quarter of this Enchilada Lasagne will provide 1 x HEA and 1 x HEB. Hope that clarifies the situation for you.

    1. Hi Tracey
      It should be fine. The wraps form a layer of the lasagne, so everything should find it’s own level. 🙂

  2. Any advice on using a gluten-free wrap? I think there are some now that are a HEB but as I’m not currently in a group (hope to rejoin this week) I can’t access anything to look. Many thanks x

    1. Hi Lucie
      Healthy Extra A choice is to provide Calcium – a measured amount of milk or cheese, or dairy free alternatives. Amounts vary depending on the type of milk or cheese.

      Healthy Extra B choice is for Fibre – wholemeal breads or cereals, some cooked fruits etc. Again, there are so many different types it’s impossible to list them all here.

      We can’t publish lists from SW due to copyright restrictions.

      Please check the Slimming World website, or you can try one of the FB groups such as Syns Allowed or How Many Syns.

  3. Hi
    will this work just as well with quorn mince? just loving the veggie recipes. I am just starting my journey with Slimming World and totally into it. Thank you for the great inspiration!

  4. Made this for tea tonight and loved it. I just had an eighth with loads of salad and was full up. Will definitely be making it again …

  5. If I just make this for myself, and use 4 wraps does that still count as 1 healthy extra B? 🧐 I know 1 wrap is a healthy extraB so just getting a bit confused!

    1. Hi Emily
      The recipe uses 4 wraps (4xHEB) and 4 x HEA cheese choices.
      The recipe gives 4 portions, so each portion is using 1 x HEA and 1 x HEB. Hope that makes it clearer for you. 🙂

  6. Just made this and it was delicious, I’m just wondering why not use syn free lasagna sheets then you won’t need use your healthy extra b? I loved it as it was but just wondering if there was a specific reason that I haven’t thought of?

    1. Hi Claire
      As this recipe has an Mexican Enchilada influence, we’ve used a Mexican theme throughout, including Tortilla-style wraps! They assemble and stack together perfectly with the chilli in a spring form tin.
      You could use lasagne sheets instead, but it won’t hold together so well when you serve it. 🙂

  7. I made this last night, WOW! It was amazing, my friends all liked to too and i still have enough for leftovers today. SO simple to make and completely delicious – thank you!

  8. Hi, I have just made the sauce mix up and even though I missed out the chilli flakes and only put 1tbs of chilli powder in and i think it will be too hot for my child and hubby, is there anyway to salvage this before I start putting it together, Thanks very much Tina

    1. Hi Tina
      It’s 2 teaspoons, not a tablespoon! Hope you haven’t mis-read the recipe! All spoon measurements are levelled, not heaped. You should find that the flavours will merge together and mellow slightly when it’s cooked. 🙂

  9. Hi Janie
    I am an idiot and did put 2 tablespoons in, I added greek yoghurt to take away the heat, Everybody loved it including hubby who is normally hard to please, I know this may seem a stupid question but how would you make this if you just wanted enchiladas, I’m no good at cooking or timing so how would I go about doing it. Only if your not busy thanks in advance Tina x

    1. Hi Tina
      We made this version to avoid the mess when you do Enchiladas! It can be really fiddly to fill the rolled up tortillas/wraps with the filling. Making it this way gives the same great flavour without the fuss!

  10. I don’t get why you would use tortillas and your HEB when pasta is free? It seems a bit of a waste especially when the tortilla just goes soggy and is hardly noticeable or I missing something? Great website btw (Y)

    1. Hi Neegan
      We’ve had some amazing feedback from this recipe – everyone loves the combined flavour and texture of the tortilla wraps used in this way. It’s Enchiladas without the messy preparation.
      Of course, you’re free to choose lasagne sheets if you’d prefer to!

  11. Loving all the recipes, currently cooking this and feel I have a lot of sauce left in the saucepan after allowing to simmer for 25 mins. The Oxo cubes I added with water rather than sprinkled on – is this where I have gone wrong? 🤔😑

    1. I’m afraid so, Kirsty!
      The recipe says you should add the oxo cubes, but doesn’t say that you make them up as stock. Next time you just need to crumble them in during step 4 of the cooking process. 🙂

  12. This may be a silly question, however i will ask anyway- if using turkey or chicken mince would you still use a beef Oxo cube? Thank X

  13. I’ve used a spring form tin as recommended and have juice from the lasagne dripping out all over the bottom of my oven. Have I done something wrong?
    Also the wraps were much smaller than the diameter of the tin but I used weight watchers wraps and a 24cm tin.

    1. Hi Kat
      You need to reduce the chilli mince until it’s reduced and really thick before you assemble the lasagne. The WW wraps do vary in size, but the ingredients all find their own level in the tin and it still tastes amazing! 🙂

  14. My family do not like kidney beans. Can you recommend an alternative? Is the kidney beans in chilli sauce vital for the flavour? (I could make it into a paste otherwise).

    1. Hi Hen
      You could switch the kidney beans for butter beans, or simply leave them out and replace with some speed veg instead. Make sure you reduce the chilli mix right down, as the extra speed foods may make it a little more watery.
      We’ve even had people in the Facebook Group using baked beans instead!

  15. I made this last week and put remaining half in freezer which I had for dinner this evening. Thought it was much nicer out of freezer! Didn’t add kidney beans as I don’t like them. Added extra speed veg instead

  16. Hi. The last time I used chilli kidney beans i found it way to spicy and couldnt eat what I had cooked,could i use normal kidney beans or half and half would it affect the over all taste of the dish.

  17. Hi, do you think I could use a beef stockpot instead of an oxo cube? Or could I just leave it out? I need to make it gluten free 😊

  18. Thank you for such an amazing recipe. Made the filling in my trusty slow cooker (I know, I know. Bone idle). Popped it onto the hob to reduce and left it in the pot overnight for the flavours to develop. I’d overdone the chilli too and didn’t want to mix yogurt in pre oven so used a tbsp of sugar and four tbsp of peanut butter powder. Worked a charm in calming it down without making it sweet/peanut buttery. Added 2.5 SYNS per portion. So I’ve had a large, tasty, meat and cheesy dinner for a total of 8.5 SYNS (bloody weetabix this morning, nicking my HexB). Link shared to my group. Can’t thank you enough for this. What diet?

    1. Hi Debbie
      So glad you enjoyed it! I made it for a recent taster night at my group and it disappeared in record time! Thanks for your extra ideas, too. 🙂

  19. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It looks absolutely amazing, I’ll be making this one day this week. Have you ever considered getting an app for all of your recipes? Keep up the brilliant and helpful work ladies x

    1. I would suggest replacing the minced beef with chicken in the recipe, so you’ll need roughly the same amount. 🙂

  20. OMG… I made this Monday night and it was amazing. Hubby said it smelt amazing when he walked in the door. He cleared his plate and even told me how nice it was later on in the evening!! Had 2 portions left for my lunches this week and I had a small side (speed!) salad with it. Delish, will definitely be making this again 🙂

  21. How long do you cook for in the oven? Your recipe states 25 mins on 160, your video says 1 hour on 180. Which is it?

    1. Hi Lorraine
      Please use the instructions on the recipe card and cook at 160° for 25 mins until the cheese has turned golden brown. Many thanks. 🙂

  22. Can I use grated mozzarella cheese rather than the one you pull apart or will it not spread enough (not really sure what the difference is between them)

    1. Hi Helen,
      Yes, that would be fine.
      You’d need to check the Syn value for the grated mozzarella to make sure you can have the same amount as your HEA. 🙂

  23. LOVE this recipe! Made it with chicken rather than the mince last time, and it was even better. Fed it to some non-SW family and there was a fight over the last piece! Result, I reckon!!

    1. Hi Jo
      I used a 23cm springform tin and although it was slightly oversized it worked fine. Just make sure you reduce the chilli mixture until it’s really thick so that it doesn’t leak. I stood my tin on a baking tray just in case. Enjoy, it’s deeeelish!

  24. Hi I made this last night it was sooooo nice minus the sweet corn tho going to reheat the rest would it be ok reheated in the microwave ya think? X

    1. Hi Kate
      So glad you enjoyed it, one of my faves too! Personally, I’d reheat in the oven, but you could try it in the microwave. 🙂

  25. I thought i had kidney beans when i made this. Only to dind i had nine. I used mixed beans in spicy tomato sauce instead. It was very tasty. I froze a xouple of portions nd reheated later in the week. Great recipe.
    Sylvia

  26. Hi, I was wondering if you was to have half of the lasagne and not a quarter. How many syns would be the extra quarter please?xx

    1. Hi Helen,
      If you scroll down to the recipe card, you’ll find all the Syn values for the ingredients used. You’ll need to total them up and then divide by 4 to find the Syns per serving. Thanks for getting in touch!

  27. I made this today and I have to say it’s delicious. The whole family loved it and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    1. Hi Suzanne
      Once cold, the enchilada lasagne firms up really well, so it’s easy to slice into portions for freezing. Defrost overnight in fridge, then reheat in the oven til piping hot. 🙂

  28. I have just made this, I want to eat it tomorrow, will it be ok kept in fridge in tin and we can just put it in oven tomatoes row night?

    1. Hi Vicky
      It will be absolutely fine! Once it’s completely cold, cover it and pop into the fridge. It tastes fab the next day.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it, Trudy! I’ve made it again for my family today, it’s a huge favourite in our house. I even use the chilli part of the recipe as my go-to chilli recipe these days, as it’s packed full of veg and tastes soooo good! Thanks for getting in touch. 🙂

  29. I have made this recipe and it is absolutely lovely, would feed more between 6-8 with a nice big salad. I have also made it as a stand alone chilli with rice (without the wraps and cheese) and its better than most chilli recipes out there.

    1. Hi Tracey
      So glad you enjoy this one. I make it regularly, and have also made it as a stand alone chilli, it tastes amazing! Thanks for getting in touch!

    1. Hi Rasheda
      So glad you enjoyed it! This is a weekly request in our house, too! I use the chilli recipe as a stand alone dish too! 🙂

  30. I love this recipe, and have made it a few times now.
    We have to freeze half of this as there are only 2 in our household, and it is so much easier to freeze in squares.
    So I was wondering if I could cut this into four equal portions in the following way.
    Firstly cut a square out of the centre and divide this into 2 portions for the freezer, then serve up 2 of the the outside crescents for each of two portions to eat now. My question is mathematical, how big should the centre square be to keep it all even.
    Sorry about this I have to admit to being a little OCD, and my maths/geometry was never that good, something to do with areas and square roots I think.
    Anyway I probably gave you all a good laugh, so not totally wasted.

    1. Hi Nicola, all figures are approximate, but good enough for the real world 😉

      r is radius of the tin (i.e. 24/2 = 12cm)

      Area = pi * r-squared = 452 sq cm

      One portion will be this divided by four, 113 sq cm, two portions will be this divided by two, i.e. 226 sq cm.

      A two portion square would have sides of sqrt of this, i.e. 15cm

      Divding this by two wil give us the distance from the centre of the tin, i.e. 7.5cm

      It’d be simpler to measure from the outside edge, which will be 12 – 7.5, i.e. 4.5cm

      So, I’d suggest measuring-in 4.5cms from the left and right edges and cutting these lines
      to produce two ‘large’ wedges. Then measure in the same distance top and bottom and cut these
      two ‘small’ wedges. One large wedge plus one small wedge should be a portion.

  31. Super recipe – simple and very impressive! Family loves it. I use the left over chilli to stuff baked potatoes – great next day lunch! Thank you so much for your wonderful site.

    1. You’re very welcome, Rebecca. So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
      I love this recipe too, and use the chilli recipe as a stand alone chilli – best ever! Many thanks for your comments.

    1. Hi Jill

      The blurb and step by step guide have lots of useful advice, then if you scroll to the bottom you’ll find the recipe card and method. 🙂

  32. I like this recipe. There is about enough spice in it for me . I am wanting to make it for someone else who doesn’t like anything to spicy. Any ideas of a substitute for the spices please.

    1. Hi Paula
      Glad you enjoyed it! I love this recipe too, and make the chilli as a stand alone dish sometimes if I don’t want to use my Healthy Extras. You can adjust the spices to suit your personal taste, maybe use the ordinary kidney beans and reduce the chilli used in the recipe too. 🙂

    1. Hi Rachel
      So glad you enjoyed it, this is one of my favourites too. I even make my chilli with this recipe now – it tastes so good! 🙂

    1. Hi Bee
      Yes, half a normal 200g sized tube. I made the chilli part of this dish on it’s own this week, too. Amazing! 🙂

    1. Hi Claire
      Please follow the written instructions for the recipe and cook for 25 mins, or until the cheeses are golden brown and bubbling. It’s absolutely delicious!! 🙂

  33. Hi, am really wanting to make this but where can I find WW wraps please? Also, would it be 160 degrees for a electric fan oven?
    Also, I only have an ordinary tin – not spring form :/ will it still work?
    Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Nade
      Weight Watchers wraps are available from Tesco, Iceland, Asda and Morrisons, according to mysupermarket.co.uk
      We use a fan oven for all our recipes. We’ve seen people make this in a normal deep baking tin, a lasagne dish or a casserole dish. Leave it to stand for 10 minutes in the dish, as this makes it easier to serve.
      Hope that helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Mandy
      As someone who grew up in Bristol and still has family there, I agree! It’s definitely gert lush!
      So glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
