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.

Then again, I am definitely the one that can live on anything-enchiladas;

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.

Example: Ground Turkey Black Bean Enchiladas

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.

    Instead of adding more salt I just added a cup of chicken broth (since I had to make that much anyway) and then let it reduce down. This gives it a lot more flavor. It was delicious!

  2. Marie K.

    Made these for dinner with our leftover turkey. They were so delicious, I will definitely make again! Great mix of seasonings!

  3. Lechia

    These were so good….my only mistake was using hot enchilada sauce by mistake so the kids couldn’t eat it but it was perfect for my husband and I

  4. Pat S.

    This was delicious. Thanks for sharing. Turkey tacos just weren’t going to do it tonight. So glad I found your recipe.

  5. Deanna

    Making this asap! My soon to be 5 year old is soooooo picky-how did you get your kids to eat these?! I can’t even bribe her with toys or her favorite thing to eat, ice cream, to try new things,nothing works lol! I will try and see what happens!

  6. Erin @ The Speckled Palate

    These enchiladas are the stuff dreams are made of! I’d certainly love to try one or two of these for lunch…
