Black on Black on Black and a Recipe.

I decided to rock the all black look for a double date night on Friday!
and I have to admit, I'm kind of obsessed with this look.

This girl is quite the handful, but gosh she's purity. 


Main squeeze.

Last week I made a new [healthy] recipe and it turned out SO yummy!
One of our favorite recipes is black bean enchiladas! 
One of my sweet friends gave me that recipe [and my own personal cook book binder] when Kyle and I got married!

Well this is very similar to black bean enchiladas but with more ingredients!
If you want to be even healthier and skip the tortillas and half the cheese 
you can totally just eat the mixture that goes inside the tortillas!
I may or may not have eaten ALL of the "left overs" before I even finished cooking.
So here we go...
This actually makes A LOT, I had a lot of the "insides" left over,
but I didnt mind because I loved it so much I ate it the rest of the week! 

What you'll need:
15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
15 oz. can of corn
6 oz. fresh baby spinach (I didnt have baby spinach so I used regular)
1 cup of fat free cottage cheese
1/3 cup cilantro
2 teaspoon cumin [I added more, because I love this stuff]
2 cups shredded 3 cheese blend (or your favoite cheese)
1 can of enchilada sauce
flour tortillas

What you'll do: 
In a large bowl, combine beans, 1 cup cheese, spinach, corn, cottage cheese,  2 tsp. cumin, and cilantro.
This is what mine looked like
Then, Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spray a 9x13 inch baking dish, and pour a small amount of the Enchilada sauce to coat the bottom.
Generously fill tortillas with the bean mixture. Roll up tightly with ends tucked in, and place seam side down in dish.
Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas, coating evenly. Sprinkle with the other 1 cup of cheese on top.

Bake about 20 minutes, and garnish with cilantro and/or green onions (optional).

I decided to make some Guac for a side!
I'm weird and don't like onions, tomatoes, etc in my guacamole.
I like it plain and super creamy!
So I mashed up 2 avocados with a fork, added some salt, garlic and lime and VOILA!
Dinner is served. 

Let me know if you try this recipe out,
Kyle and I both loved it.

xoxo, Monica

  1. I love the backless shirts you wear so often on your blog! Question: what kind of bra do you wear to be able to pull them off??

  2. I love all black! It's so sleek. The first meal Josh & I made together years back was enchiladas & we literally threw it all together & hoped for the best. It turned out really good! This looks a little healthier than our creation so I will have to whip this up soon. Glad to see you doing well!!
