3 Bean Enchiladas
I’m really trying to cut down on our spending this year. I want to tell you all about that, but it’s a long story for another day, I think. Anyway, one of the ways I’m doing that is by trying to go vegetarian at least once per week. This is a lot harder than it sounds, especially when your husband insists it’s not a meal unless there’s some kind of meat involved.
Thankfully, I’ve been pretty successfully subbing meat for beans without much argument. I’m guessing it’s because the recipes are turning out so yummy that it’s hard to complain. Mr. Gracious was eating the bean filling right out of the bowl while I was trying to stuff these 3 Bean Enchiladas! He said they’d make fantastic tacos too, if you want to make it even easier!
These simple 3 Bean Enchiladas are so good because it’s a combination of classic and simple flavors. It’s not too overwhelming, and it allows you to really enjoy what is there. That’s my favorite kind of food. The kind that brings you back to the basics. After all, you can’t go wrong with a classic. I hope you enjoy these 3 Bean Enchiladas as much as we did!
