Weeknight Wonders {Chicken Enchiladas and Black Beans}

I feel like a fraud.  Here I am offering you lovely weeknight meals to prepare for your family, and guess what we’ve had for dinner this week?  Pizza Rolls, Pancakes, and Peanut Butter Sandwiches.  Actually, last night I had corn chips and a glass of wine for dinner, but don’t tell anyone.  It’s not something I’m proud of.

The Husband is out of town this week, and quality dinners have been replaced with speedy meal solutions as I shuffle everyone to afternoon practices, oversee the bath-time circus, and try to maintain some sense of order around here.  Given our current circumstances, I don’t have a lot of words to accompany this week’s post.  But who needs words when you have pictures like this…

Simply stated, sour cream chicken enchiladas are one of my favorite meals, and this recipe is the best I’ve found.  They aren’t difficult to make, but they are a tiny bit more involved than just wrapping up chicken in a tortilla and covering it in cheese.  This is one of those recipes that puts the “Wonder” in Weeknight Wonders, and the results are worth it.

Almost every time I serve these beans, someone asks for the recipe.  They are simple to make and can be held on the stove while you prepare everything else.  I tend to include them as a part of any Tex-Mex menu.

Finally, In my opinion, nothing goes better with Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas and Black Beans than a side of guacamole.  Don’t you think?

Both of these dishes can be prepared up to one day in advance.
