Meatless Black Bean Enchiladas

My family loves this recipe! It's quick and easy, so it's great for busy schedules. You can heat up the enchiladas as kids come and go. —Wendy Stenman, Germantown, Wisconsin

    Good and simple. Did not have an onion so that was omitted but not really missed.

    Very good. Very simple. You will not miss the meat. I put some sliced black olives on top cause I just happened to have some.

    Absolutely delicious and low fat too! It doesn't get much better than that! The only change I made was adding a diced jalapeño to the filling and that's just because our family likes it spicy! Wonderful recipe!

    It looks good but it is clearly a BURRITO.
