Quick and Easy Enchiladas

Black Beans and Corn Enchiladas

Enchiladas are Mexico’s answer to Italian lasagna. Instead of layering pasta, veggies and sauce, we wrap everything in tortillas and then cover with sauce and cheese. The best part is that it is freezer friendly and reheats well, so make a double batch.

The most important part is the sauce, but don’t worry we made this in 5 minutes using a blender!!!

This is a saucy dish, if you want to go lighter on the sauce, save the rest for pasta or pizza. It can be frozen too.
