These are really easy, and (if you have premade enchilada sauce) should get you from chopping to table in under 45 minutes, and should cost less than $10 for the meal, too. Just pop in a roasted vegetable next to the enchiladas in the oven, and you?re good to go!

Recipe Ingredients for Gluten Free: Black Bean and Turkey Enchiladas

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pounds ground turkey
15 ounces black beans
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 pinch kosher or sea salt
18 ounces enchilada sauce
16 corn tortillas
4 ounces cheddar

Recipe Directions for Gluten Free: Black Bean and Turkey Enchiladas

  1. Method:

  2. Preheat the oven to 400F and lightly oil a 9×13 pan.

  3. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and begin to sauté.

  4. When the onion & garlic start to soften, add the ground beef. Stir, browning the beef. Add spices so that the flavors will meld while cooking.

  5. While the beef is browning, warm the tortillas. Wrap the stack of tortillas in a slightly damp tea towel or paper towel, then microwave for 30 seconds. Flip the stack over, and repeat. Check to see if they are warm and softened. You may need to microwave them a little longer because microwaves vary.

  6. Drain the fat from the beef mixture, then add the drained beans and stir until well combined.

  7. Pour a little enchilada sauce into the 9×13 pan, enough to lightly cover the bottom. Hold a tortilla across your palm, and spoon in a couple tablespoons worth of the beef/bean mixture. Roll the sides over (they fold over just like your fingers and thumb do when making a fist), and place in the pan seam-side-down. Repeat until you are out of filling, tortillas, or space in the pan!

  8. Pour enchilada sauce generously over the enchiladas - you want them to end up deliciously moist. Top with shredded Cheddar. Cover with foil and pop in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook for 5 more minutes to brown cheese.

  9. Serve as is or with avacado and sour cream
