Read more

You had us at cheese. Creamy, southwest spiced black beans and veggies are rolled up and topped with cheese, then baked to bubbly perfection. The veggies are spiced with cumin, which has an earthy, warm flavor, while the beans are spiced with smoky chipotle. Pepper Jack cheese ties these together with a blanket of baked golden deliciousness. Pickled Jalapeno and lime crema complete these baked enchiladas to send your tastebuds to cheesy, veggie heaven.
