(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.

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
  • Onion
  • bell pepper
  • canned black beans
  • frozen corn
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • salt
  • cheese
  • salsa
  • flour or corn tortillas
  • Optional leftover meat or chicken

  1. 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.

  2. Thanks Lydia. I did think these sounded so easy and good.

  3. That photo makes my mouth water!! Those would be great for my breakfast ... or any other meal! :-)


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