Baked Beef Enchiladas

When I think of what healthier living means to me, it’s being intentional and balanced between family, work, habits, eating, exercise, and everything that encompasses my day.

I know that thinking the right thoughts means choosing to listen to positive messages and friends. Exercising means going often to the gym or taking a beautiful walk or jog outside, or just creating a good habit.

Having a balance between work and family when you work from home, can sometimes have blurred lines and I have to choose when to shut down my office hours and focus on family time.

Make Healthier Dinner Choices

It is the same with healthier choices in eating. When you are home the majority of the day, it can be easy to binge eat snacks and things that are not the best for you. If you keep lots of raw veggies in the refrigerator and drink plenty of water and protein shakes daily, then you have a better chance of better eating habits.

Recently in my meal planning, I have been using Black Beans as protein in several of my dishes. I have made black bean brownies for friends that were vegan and gluten-free. They actually taste delicious, by the way. You can also put white beans in your smoothies. It is a great way to get high protein in your diet, and the best part is you can’t really taste the beans like you think you might. They just add protein and some density to your dish.

Last night I made the best beef enchilada recipe with low sodium black beansThey were really quick to make and budget-friendly.

Gather All Ingredients For Recipe

One thing I like to do when I make a recipe is to get all the ingredients out first. Make sure I have everything. Then open up the cans, but the spices in small bowls and see everything in front of me, while reading my recipe twice to make sure I don’t forget anything.

  1. Do you have the nutritional values for this recipe. I was hoping it was low sodium

    Thank you ‘

  2. These look so good. I love black beans and I love enchiladas, so what could be better. Thank you for sharing.

  3. 5 stars
    Candi, these beef-and-bean enchiladas were delicious! I’m always looking for new spins on a traditional recipe. I made an extra flat of these for my parents and they too really enjoyed them.

  4. Super excited to serve these for dinner later today! But I had to guess how much cream cheese to use because the unit of measure was not specified in the ingredients or in the directions — just “1/2.”
