Bean and Avocado Enchiladas
Originating from Mexico, the enchilada is a popular dish both there and in the American Southwest. It is a rolled tortilla stuffed with various ingredients like meat, beans, veggies, or cheese. For this recipe, we’ve left meat aside and we’ve filled our tortillas with beans, avocado, and veggies. We’ve also cooked up a nice mole sauce, we can’t wait for our fans to try.
