    ChipotleChick's Note:

    These are fantastic! You cannot tell that they are reduced-fat (in comparison with other enchiladas). I serve these with a generous dollop of light sour cream. Great fix for a comfort food craving!

      Delicious comfort food! Great flavor and very quick to make. I used 1 teaspoon of chili powder and cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder instead of taco seasoning. Love the black beans in this. I'm so glad I tried this dish! Thanks for sharing Chipotle Chick!
