Black Bean Enchiladas

Black Beans Enchiladas with Verde Sauce 

Mexican food is always part of our weeknight meals and this dish was an easy one to make. The Verde sauce was already stored in my refrigerator and all I had to do was make the beans. The tortillas filled with beans drenched in warm and spicy verde sauce is everything I wanted to eat after a tiring day. Checkout my recipe for verde sauce under sauce/chutney recipe.
