Black Bean and Cheese Enchiladas
I am never a fan of Mondays. The weekends always go too fast!
Last night we made enchiladas for dinner. We did black bean/cheese enchiladas and Josh added some of his cilantro lime chicken to his side. I made sure they were divided in the pan, no chicken for me please!! It was easy to tell which ones were Josh's, he likes a ton of cheese and I don't like very much:)
We rolled up the enchiladas in no time and then baked them until the cheese and sauce was nice and bubbly. I also made some guacamole for an appetizer. I don't know why we haven't been making these more often. They were awesome!!
Black Bean and Cheese Enchiladas
(Chicken too if you want to add it!)
10 corn tortillas
1 big can of red enchilada sauce
1 15 ounce can of black beans, low sodium, rinsed and drained
1 small can of diced green chilies
1 small onion
Chopped fresh cilantro
Shredded marbled cheddar and pepper jack cheese (or whatever kind you like) Use whatever amount you want. We didn't measure!
Cilantro Lime Chicken-optional. Josh used his leftovers!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl mix the black beans, green chilies, onion, cilantro, salt, and pepper together.
In a small casserole dish, spread some of the enchilada sauce on the bottom. Dip the corn tortillas in the sauce as you go to keep them moist. This will prevent them from breaking. Fill the tortillas with the bean mixture, sprinkle some cheese on top, and add chicken if you are using it.
Roll up ten tortillas with filling.
Pour the remaining sauce over all of the tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. We added extra green chilies and cilantro on top. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling.

I love to make enchiladas at home. I haven't added black beans, but that's a great idea. It would really boost the nutrition.
I may just make these for dinner tonight - they look great.
These look perfect, just perfect. I'm adding the Cilantro Lime chicken to mine! Making these will definitely make Mondays seem a little less dreary.
Yum- these look absolutely delicious! Perfect for a weeknight!
Your enchiladas look great. Enchiladas don't last long at our house.
Your enchiladas look divine! and so do you cinnadoodles!
Yum, Yum !! Enjoy your visit with your Dad & Theresa! Tell them hello for me.
That is so funny- I have enchiladas on my menu for tonight! What a bummer that you have to work while your dad is in town! Maybe you can get out early? I will keep my fingers crossed for you!
Love the enchiladas! Those cinnadoodles look good, too.
I hate Mondays too! I think that is why Sunday is depressing sometimes. But would sure brighten it up.
lovely meal... :)
I love enchiladas, and the addition of cilantro lime chicken sounds delicious to me! You've photographed your meal quite nicely. My photos of enchiladas usually look like mush though they taste good!
It must be the season for a little spice!
The enchiladas look great - I'll have the chicken. ;)
Those look so good. Yum!
Oh man, that guac looks fabulous, just fabulous and I'll have your share of the cilantro lime chicken if that's ok.
oh yummy! that looks soo good....guacamole is soo good!
Not a fan of Mondays myself either. I went into work 2 hours late today & it felt like a holiday. I wish all Mondays could be like that. Anyhoo, these enchiladas look great!!!!!
Oh, I also made the artichoke gratinata from Giada's and it was just OK. I love artichokes but on their own even with some other good stuff was just too artichoky.
Great minds think alike, we just had enchiladas!
Enchiladas are a great Monday food - easy to put together and oh so yummy. Quick comfort food!
Mmmm, my mouth is watering! These look so yummy! I LOVE black beans!
These look awfully good. I love enchiladas.

Hmmmm.... looks yummy. I've never had enchilada, at first I thought it was lasagne ;)
I'm drooling over the enchiladas...and ESPECIALLY the guacamole!
Enchiladas with black beans...delicious!
Enchilada night looks like fun...can I have an invite next time? I'll bring the pico de gallo and chipotle sour cream!
I love enchilada night - I need to plan one now!!
Oh, that had to be the best dinner. My husband has been begging for enchiladas.
enchiladas are a personal favorite, especially when black beans and guacamole are involved. i must say, your guac is particularly gorgeous. :)
