Black Bean Enchiladas

I got paid today so I went to Wal-Mart for groceries.  I was proud of myself because I planned my grocery list instead of just buying whatever sounds good!  I borrowed an idea from the bestie Dirty Cow and bought the ingredients for 4 different dinners for ADE to choose from each night this week.  I think it will save me a lot of stress and hopefully some money, too!  

Choices for this week:
Shrimp/potatoes/corn/sausage (shrimp boil)
Black Bean Enchiladas
BLTTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato, turkey, avocado) Sandwiches 
Sloppy Joe's (a fave of ADE's)

Tonight, he chose Black Bean Enciladas... I was a little nervous because I'd never made these before.  I heard of this yummy dish at Practically Perfect in this post.  The recipe can be found here.

It took a little longer than I expected (about an hour) but it turned out really well.  Adam said it's the best meal I've ever made him!

To go with our main dish I also made Avapico:
3-4 avocados (mash them up)
1 can Mexicorn (don't drain)
1 can Original Rotel (drain it a little)
Chopped purple onion (to taste)
Lime juice (to taste)
Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper (to taste)
Chips for dipping of course!

*mix it all together, it's easy, and YUM-O!*
