(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and I think these Black Bean Enchiladas made in the slow cooker sound fabulous!)

Black bean enchiladas might not seem like a good Meatless Monday dinner idea at this time of year if you had to heat up the oven to cook them, but what about these Slow Cooker Black Bean Enchiladas from The Kitchn?   Honestly, I can imagine eating these most any time of year.  The recipe starts with onion, chopped bell pepper, black beans, corn, and spices mixed together with cheese.  That mixture is rolled into tortillas; then the enchiladas are layered in the slow cooker with salsa and cheese and "baked" without heating up the house.  You can add meat to this recipe if you wish, but this vegetarian version sounds great to me.

I hope you enjoy trying this from-scratch slow cooker recipe!  Use this link to get the recipe for Slow Cooker Black Bean Enchiladas from The Kitchn.

I think enchiladas are perfect for this time of year. After all, they originated in a warm climate! The slow cooker really helps keep the kitchen cool.

Thanks Shirley. And it would be easy enough to use corn tortillas for a gluten-free version.
