Healthy Meals Monday: Chicken and Bean Enchiladas with Creamy Salsa Verde

If I had to pick one food to eat for the rest of my life, it would most definitely be these Chicken and Bean Enchiladas with Creamy Salsa Verde sauce. They are so easy to make and full of amazing flavor. My kids love this healthy, and say meal.

I am loving enchiladas right now. I saw this chicken and bean one with creamy salsa verde and I knew I had to try it. The sauce turned out amazing and my whole family gobbled them right up.
Was I a little disappointed that there was no leftovers? Ya, a little bit I was. But I just made them again later that week. They were so yummy, and my family couldn’t stop raving about them.
I am all about simple dinners with only a few inexpensive ingredients, and that’s exactly what these were. They were so inexpensive and had the most amazing flavor to them.
They came together in a matter of minutes, and were absolutely to die for. They are officially in the weekly rotation for dinner.

what other meat would be good in these?

If you are looking to add a different kind of meat for these enchiladas, here is what I recommend:

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

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

I love topping mine off with guacamole.
