Family Meal Staple
This delicious beef and black bean enchiladas recipe is a staple in the family meal rotation. It’s been around so long that it has been adapted through all my dietary trends and restrictions through the years.
Beef and black bean enchilada recipe accommodate many goals
When I first began making beef enchilada as a family meal, I used whole wheat tortillas and added black beans into the dish to sneak a high fiber low meat meal. I consider this recipe a Tex Mex “Mediterranean Diet”. Years later, with my gluten intolerance, I changed to corn tortillas. The third recipe change occurs when I began eliminating grain on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD ) and therefore use almond or cashew tortillas. All three versions taste amazing, and I include all options in the recipe below.
The homemade enchilada sauce really makes the recipe unique, and you can use it with any tortilla type. Try making enchilada sauce from scratch – you get a more authentic Tex Mex taste. Bottom line is that it is a very adaptable recipe that can accommodate many diets or nutritional goals.
