Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

  3. Remove from heat, stir in black beans and set aside.
  4. Pour enough enchilada sauce to cover the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish and set aside.
  5. To prepare enchiladas, dip tortillas, one at a time, in prepared sauce, place on a plate and fill with some of the meat mixture followed by a sprinkling of cheese. Roll tortilla, placing seam side down in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  6. Cover with remaining sauce and cheese. Bake for 20–30 minutes until golden and bubbly. Enjoy with a dollop of sour cream, extra jalapeños for kick, avocado, and a sprinkling of cilantro.
