Black Bean Veggie Enchiladas

I l-o-v-e fruits and vegetables. I often times find myself creating dishes based around Nature’s many works of art. The vibrant colors and flavor profiles provide a party for your tastebuds, as well as health benefits. This dish offers protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and it is one to make you say ‘MMMMmmm!’ The variety to this recipe is endless..but beware! You can totally get carried away with all the vegetable combinations and will end up with a huge pot of veggies and not enough dishes for all of it. I speak from personal experience. ;)
