Black Bean & Corn Enchiladas are loaded with fresh flavors of beans, corn, cilantro, onions and garlic. Then topped with fresh Enchilada sauce and cheese. Gluten Free & Vegetarian.
Are you Ready for some Mexican food that will most likely become one of your new favorites!
These Black Bean & Corn Enchiladas have become my new favorite Enchiladas to make.
And to really take these over the top you ABSOULETLY must make the homemade enchilada sauce.
Cause you definitely are going to want spectacular…RIGHT!
You can always make the enchilada sauce ahead, if you’re looking to save time.
But once you’ve tried these I’m convinced you’ll feel like it was worth it for awesome Black Bean & Corn Enchiladas.
The first time I made homemade enchiladas I knew I would be making them time and time again.
But since I’m kind of partial to Mexican food these were a no brainer.
Oh, and of course let’s not forget the Italian as well, as you can see by all my pizza recipes.
You’ll want to start by making the enchilada sauce(or you can use already prepared enchilada sauce) and the rest is just chopping up your veggies and filling the wraps.
That’s the fun part to me.
This recipe makes six large wraps if you stuff em really full like I do. Haha!
But you could actually get seven to eight with the amount of filling these make.
And they are really great leftover. So feel free to make extras or make them ahead!
So once you starting chopping all these wonderful veggies you are actually ready to combine them all for the stuffing.
Have I made anybody hungry yet?
That’s the plan 🙂
