Sauce so good you won’t even miss the meat!

Last week’s recipe was a snack that turns into dessert with just ONE added ingredient. Click here to see it!

These enchiladas are sure to satisfy. I know it’s a long list but don’t be intimidated. It’s really not a lot when you physically line them up. Measure your spices into a small bowl and get them out of the way. Everything else will flow!

If you can’t have as many carbs, replace half of the beans with more of any veggie.
