black bean enchilada recipe

ok sandra gave me this recipe and i have to admit i was a little apprehensive because my family are all meat eaters, but even avery ate it and didn't complain, so that is a good sign.

bag of black beans (just put them in the crockpot and keep them covered with water until they are cooked)
sautee an onion with green peppers and if you want it hot you could add jalapenos. i added a red pepper too because i had it and some cauliflower. i am going to make them again tonight with broccoli too and see how that goes.
i just put a few black beans in each tortilla with the sauteed vegetables and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese and filled the pan up. then i poured rosaritas enchilada sauce over the top (you can use whatever enchilada sauce that you like. i also sprinkled the rest of the beans over the top which wasn't that many and put a little more cheese on top (i have been trying to use cheese sparingly because of its fat and calorie content and i find that my family doesn't complain as long as there is a little bit of cheese and they are getting about half the calories). bake in the oven on 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and then serve. it was a hit at our house. thanks sandra. enjoy.
