Black Bean & Quinoa Enchiladas
Mexican cuisine is the perfect comfort food that also happens to make a quick and easy meal. Packed with bell peppers, green chiles, quinoa, and black beans, these simple enchiladas bake up in less than 30 minutes (psst ... double the recipe and freeze the second batch for another meal!). Drizzle vegan nacho cheese on these bad boys, and bam! you're good to go. Flummoxed by frijoles? Watch chef Katherine Lawrence prepare these enchiladas step-by-step on VegNews TV.
