A couple days ago, I started the soaking/cooking process for dried black beans. This morning, I sautéed 3/4 of a red onion, sliced carrots and garlic in olive oil until they were soft, then I added the black beans along with salt, pepper, cumin, and red pepper flakes. I cooked the mix until everything was heated, then I let it cool and put it in the fridge for later!

After I dropped Mo off at the bus station, I went to the gym and grocery store. I came home with all the fixin’s necessary to make enchiladas!

After I rolled all the enchiladas, I laid them (seam side down) in a pan that had enchilada sauce on the bottom.

These are all the ingredients I used, but I didn’t take pictures of the process or the final product! Oops…

I ended up cutting them and individually wrapping them so they are easy to bring to work!

Time for homework and THE STEELERS! GO TEAM GO!
