Healthy Black Bean Spinach Enchiladas

These Healthy Black Bean Spinach Enchiladas are incredibly easy to make, and full of amazing flavor. They take minutes to throw together, and only require a few simple ingredients. You will love how yummy these taste.

We love Enchiladas at our house. I wanted to find a way to stick some veggies in there and I came across a recipe from The Garden Grazer.

I changed things around a little bit to make it so my girls would eat it and it turned out delicious. Hope you love it as much as we did. 

They were so easy to make and seriously had the most amazing flavor to them. They were very filling, yet so light.

They tasted so fresh, and my kids gobbled them right up. If you are looking for an easy and healthy meal, this is definitely one I recommend.

what tortillas work best for this recipe?

I prefer to use whole wheat tortillas for the nutrition benefits. However, really any tortilla would work. We also recommend using a 8 or 9 inch tortilla, so they fit best in the pan.

You could use white flour tortillas, corn tortillas, or whatever you prefer, but for healthy purposes, my family and I prefer to use whole wheat tortillas.

what meat would be good in these?

If you are looking to add meat to these enchiladas, here is what we recommend:

-Ground Beef
-Ground Turkey
-Chicken (grilled or shredded)
-Shredded Turkey Breast
-Chicken Sausage

You could really use any meat. You could even turn these into breakfast enchiladas, with egg and bacon. Have fun with your enchiladas, and add all your favorite toppings.

I love topping mine off with guacamole.

    Most of your recipes look AMAZING! But many of them contain gluten. I would like to see more alternative recipes for those of us cannot eat gluten. These enchiladas look soooo good. Maybe I'll try them without the tortillas. Thanks.
