Recipe: Black Bean Enchiladas

The other night I whipped up some black bean enchiladas. The result was a super filling (and healthy!) dinner. This meal was low in fat and contained a ton of fiber, protein, calcium, iron, and quality carbohydrates.  Perfect for runners! Although be aware that this is a VERY high fiber dish. You might not want to try it the night before an important race or long run 😉
