Cheesy Chicken and Bean Enchiladas

Delicious gooey, cheesy, saucy chicken and black bean enchiladas are the perfect comfort food on a gloomy Monday afternoon.

A bit of rain along with some flurries didn’t stop this awesomeness from cooking in the oven.

And why? Because there was lots of team effort put into this mouth-watering authentic dish created by two great mothers.

Best friends that turn ordinary cooking into spectacular ethnic creations.

And these amazing flavor packed enchiladas are just one of many that have a 5 star rating in our family.

So here it is…

And remember…

Cook with passion because lets be honest. It just always tastes better that way 😁

So grateful to have you beside my writing journey, inspired by my sister who now lives in heaven.
