sour cream and black bean enchiladas.

I adapted this recipe from keep it simple foods last night to make some very delicious enchiladas.  I changed the recipe up a bit to use what was in the house and not buy some of the more expensive ingredients at the store

it ended up looking a little like this:

Serves: 4

12 small flour tortillas
1 can black beans
1/2 cup sour cream
1-1.5 cups grated marble cheese (whatever cheese you have works fine)
1/2 any colour pepper, chopped
1/4 any colour onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 cloves garlic
2 fresh jalapenos, chopped (you could use jarred or skip this step if you don't like the spice because it definitely had a kick!)
1/2 lime juice and zest (don't skip this step- it added the perfect flavour)
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1ish cup of taco sauce (I used this in lieu of enchilada sauce, which we didn't have, and it turned out perfectly. you just need enough to coat all the enchiladas)

*note: I omitted the cilantro from the original recipe because I didn't have any on hand

mix the beans, onion(not green onion), and garlic.  then add in lime zest and juice, all spices, sour cream and about 1/3 cup cheese. mix well.

add the filling to the tortillas and roll up tight.  then cover all tortillas in the enchilada/taco sauce and sprinkle remaining cheese, green onion, and jalapenos on top :)

bake at 350 for 20 minutes. enjoy!!
