Black Bean Enchiladas

My husband and I love Tex Mex and since we live outside of San Antonio we have so many places to choose from to eat at, but on this day I decided to save money and create my own Tex Mex dish. We are striving to eat healthier each day so I decided to put a healthy spin on a Tex Mex dish and make Black Bean Enchiladas. Not only are they delicious and simple to make, but the are pretty healthy. 



If I had corn I would have added it for a touch of sweetness. In addition, I would have like to have added sauteed onions. 




The Black Bean Enchiladas are very simple to make. As you are browning the meat, add the peppers, cilantro and garlic. After the meat has cooked, add the beans and tomatoes, but if you are using canned beans and tomatoes make sure to rinse them before adding them. This gets the 'gunk' off of them and makes them a bit healthier. Mix everything up and simmer. 


Bake the Black Bean Enchiladas at 350 degrees for around 13 to 18 minutes; only you know your oven so keep your eyes on them. I served this dish with my Mango Salsa and my husband's world famous 'Hotter Than Hot' hot sauce. I hope you enjoy.

  8. I LOVE enchiladas. These are the easiest things to make and the most filling. You can even make these meatless with veggies and they're still good. Great recipe too.

  9. I love Black Bean Burritos so I know that I would enjoy these enchiladas too. It's a really versatile recipe and I like being able to change up some of the ingredients due to dietary restrictions.
