Healthy Black Bean Enchiladas

Recipe by Dre S

I always loved enchiladas and played around with this to make it healthy. It's super yummy and very versatile - you can mix it up to your taste. You can make it a day or two in advance and then just pop it in the oven, so it's become my favorite dish to make for new parents. One time saver is you can just substitute a box of mexican-style rice for the rice and seasonings - it will still be great. You can also add more or less cheese to taste.

We absolutely loved it. We did a few alterations (chicken cubes and homemade enchilada sauce and cooked only about 3 tbsp of rice with the rest of the ingredients) but it turned out great and was delicious!
