First of all, happy Sunday, my dear friends! I imagine you taking a long Sunday morning break with your feet propped up on the couch, remote in one hand, and your laptop in the other. Am I right?!

Oh Oh! I also see some of you reading the newspaper! Can it really BE? Like, real paper?? Get out. I don’t believe it…

And is anyone heading out to Church, or place of worship?? It’s what I SHOULD be doing… hopefully I’ll make it there a bit later today.

Second of all, my mouth is in love. Staring at these photos, remembering these awesome turkey black bean enchiladas… they’ve got a zing of tangy enchilada sauce deliciousness, and they are 1000% addicting.

They are all so darn very good, and I have a 4-year old that agrees 100%.

I have to say, after having these two little kids, persuasion towards food is a skill I’ve pretty much mastered. #truth

AND if they really really reallllyyyy love something I’ve made? Like, mucho love?? That something ends up on this bloggy of mine almost 99% of the time.

After the initial shade thrown at the black beans – Mom, they look like bugs!! MOM! Don’t make us eat it! MOM! ewwwww, yuuuuck, grozzzzzzz!! – I made them try it and I made them love it!

Okay. LOVE is a pretty strong word, but for first timers, they did a-ok.

    Ground Turkey Black Bean Enchiladas.This easy enchilada recipe is very filling and delicious! Wholemeal flour bread is stuffed with ground turkey, beans and spices, then stewed with homemade enchilada sauce.I wasn’t planning to make the homemade enchilada sauce … just buy canned food. But my Yummly app has added all the materials from me to the shopping list without realizing it. So I did it reluctantly and GLAD about the error. This sauce was added to the delicious and truly depth dish. I will never get a can of enchilada sauce again. I used 2 tablespoons of chipotle peppers and gave a good kick but not enough to scare my 11 year old. It was enjoyed by the whole family with complaints from the chef’s side. I ended up with extra stuffing even after filling 8 breads with 1/2 bread. So I froze extra and I will make an enchilada boat with it or add cabbage for a low carb bowl for lunch. Thank you for all the great Mexican recipes. Living in SoCal, we love to request Mexican food weekly and have low point options. My longing was so satisfied that I have not been to the normal Mexican restaurant for more than 60 days even for weekly Mexican food!I made this recipe at least 5 times with no additions / edits, and it’s always amazing! As mentioned in previous comments, mixing adobe chiles and freezing the leftovers really helped reduce waste. The first thing my friend tasted was the taste of enchiladas from a restaurant like them! I associate this with incredible sauce. I will do this for the dinner party tomorrow and this time I will try using grated chicken.

    For the enchilada lover out there, this enchiladas are great tasting, high in fiber and very filling! One filled me with a salad, my husband filled it with a big appetite for two. Add some lean sour cream, green onions or coriander on top. Look for half-point bread, such as wholemeal and low-carb Tumaros, the La Tortilla Factory or Trader Joe’s. If you like this recipe, you may also want to try one of my favorites, Chicken Enchiladas.
