Spicy Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas- delicious comfort food for my family. When everyone in the family loves it you know it has to be good!
Spicy Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas are soft tortillas filled with mexican rice and black beans that have been cooked in a yummy Mexican inspired tomato sauce. First you start some Jasmine rice that you cook with some taco seasoning mix. I use my own homemade taco seasoning recipe. You can find it here https://mariasmixingbowl.com/homemade-taco-seasoning/.
Then you cook the black beans with some of the taco seasoning in some olive oil for about 5 minutes.
Then you add in the tomatoes and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Once the black beans and tomatoes have cooked you mix half of the mixture inthe rice with 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 of a squeezed lime. then you start rolling out your Spicy Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas!
Lay your Spicy Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas in a baking dish and cover with the remainder of the bean and tomato mixture and the sprinkle 1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese over the top.
