Hello there friends!! Can’t believe it’s already Thursday! This week has flown by, which is great because this weekend is a holiday weekend! Happy *almost* Independence day! What are your weekend plans? As of right now… we have none. But that’ll change soon. I hope we go to a BBQ of some sort… I saw these in a magazine and would love to try and make them..
It’s cupcakes with yellow icing and jelly beans! It looks like corn on the cob. How stinkin’ CUTE is that? Now.. how to make them “healthier“. That’s the challenge. Any recommendations?
The other day I made homemade black bean enchiladas. They were stellar. Seriously fabulous.
I’ve made black bean enchiladas before, but with a TON of cheese… this time I did things a little different. I used…
- 1 can of black beans
- light sour cream (could sub for plain greek yogurt for more protein)
- tomato & pineapple pico de gallo
- 4 tortillas
- shredded mozzarella (all I had on hand)
- Verde salsa
I took the black beans and rinsed them, added them into a bowl. In the bowl I added along with the black beans, the pico, and a tablespoon of sour cream. Mixed all of that together. Added paprika and salt. Stir, stir, stir. Then added the mixture to each individual tortilla and rolled each up and placed into the glass pan.
Once all of the tortillas were filled and placed into the pan, I added the verde salsa on top and then sprinkled some cheese on top of the salsa. Covered the pan with foil and placed in the oven for 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
After 35 minutes, I removed the foil and let sit in the oven another 5-10 minutes.
Then its time to enjoy! We had enchiladas with a side of hatch chili tortilla chips and some tasty red roasted salsa. YUM! I love making this dish because there’s always left overs and they do taste even better then next or next-next day.
Also, I received these beauties in the mail the other day…
Lots of grilling ideas too! And with summertime on us, grilling is one of our favorite things to do. I can’t wait to try all this out… I’ll have some posts up soon of what I’ve created!
