Black Bean and Quinoa Enchiladas

These enchiladas are what we had for dinner on Wednesday! It totally hit the spot for my once-a-week Mexican food craving. Ok, honestly, its more like once a day Mexican food craving.

I have never used quinoa as a filling for enchiladas before but since I just bought some red quinoa and wanted to put it to use, I figured it would be a great substitute for rice. It worked really well with the creamy black beans. I also tried my hand at making my own enchilada sauce by adapting this recipe I found on Add A Pinch and it worked super well! I am normally obsessed with Trader Joe’s enchilada sauce (which you should try if you haven’t), but I can honestly say this was a better home-made substitute!
