Beef and Bean Enchiladas

Submitted by: STAYFORDINNER
Beef and Bean Enchiladas

Introduction

There is so much to be said about these enchiladas. About their cumin and chili spiced centers. About tender beef and earthy black beans. About the sweetness of crushed tomatoes and the way the tortillas turn soft and slightly flaky when baked, like pastry dough. About gooey melting cheese bubbling across their rolled backs. They are divine. There is so much to be said about these enchiladas. About their cumin and chili spiced centers. About tender beef and earthy black beans.

Ingredients

    2 tsp olive oil

    2 cups sliced bell peppers, any color

    1 medium onion, sliced

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    8 oz lean ground sirloin

    1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed

    1 TBSP chili powder

    1 TBSP ground cumin

    tsp paprika

    pinch cayenne pepper

    tsp salt

    12 6" whole wheat tortillas- preferably La Tortilla Factory Low Carb

    1 16 oz jar hot salsa, divided

    1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, or any blend you like

Directions

(makes 6 servings: each serving is 2 filled tortillas)

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil, swirling to coat. Add the peppers and onions and saute for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds.

Add ground beef and use a fork to crumble it. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until the mixture is no longer pink.

Stir in the chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne, salt, black beans, and cup of the salsa. Mix well.

Now preheat your oven to 350 F. Spread half of the remaining salsa over the bottom of a 13x9 baking pan.

Lay your tortillas on a clean work surface and spoon a heaping cup onto the center of each. Roll tightly and line them up, closely packed into the baking pan, seam side down.

When all of the tortillas have been filled and placed into the pan, evenly pour the remaining salsa over the top.

Sprinkle the pan with the cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes. Allow the enchiladas to cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with sour cream and fresh cilantro.
