Black Bean Enchiladas

Very yummy!!

I was very excited about this recipe, like a little too excited!  I love Mexican food, enchiladas being one of my favorites to personally make.  They are super easy and you can change-up the ingredients in so many different ways… this usually works to my advantage because once again I forgot my grocery list at the house!  One thing I changed was the amount of enchiladas I made, the recipe called for 8 and I only made 6, I knew that this pan would fit 6 perfectly from all the other times that I have made enchiladas.  I still made the same amount of ingredients for the filling as the recipe called for because I love eating the leftover filling all by itself.. one of the perks of being the cook! 😉  I used the La Tortilla Factory 80 calorie tortillas that I could only find at Kroger, OF COURSE none of the local grocery stores had them!  Ok, so I was at the grocery store in the freezer section (for those of you who haven’t looked at the recipe already, it calls for a cup of frozen fire roasted corn) and I’m looking (without my list) at the fire roasted corn and I’m thinking, “yum that looks good, but what would I cook with it?”  So instead of getting the fire roasted like I should have, even if it was just because it looked good, I got the plain!  Sometimes I surprise even myself at my stupidity!! So, point of the corn story is that I had to improvise.. I used a cup of the plain corn I had and I mixed in a half can of Rotel to give a little more spice (which I like).  And since the recipe called for chunky salsa, I figured it would all workout just fine!  When it finally came down to chow time I was very pleased.  Even though it didn’t have meat in it, it was still very filling and had a great taste to it!  I definitely will be making these again, I have found healthy enchiladas and I’m super excited… I just have to remember that just because they are healthy that doesn’t mean I should eat the whole pan!
