Black Bean and Avocado Enchiladas

Black Bean and Avocado Enchiladas

There's a big chocolate-eating holiday coming up, and some of you may be thinking more about Valentines Day food than you are about Meatless Monday this week. Luckily, this amazing-sounding recipe for Black Bean and Avocado Enchiladas from Budget Bytes has you covered for both. The delicious enchiladas are vegan, and Beth says avocado provides the creaminess that you might normally get from cheese in an enchilada recipe. And the from-scratch sauce used for these enchiladas has a little bit of cocoa powder added for the extra something that chocolate always provides. Meatless Monday + chocolate; that sounds like true love to me.
