Made these enchiladas for supper, very flavorful. I soaked the dried black beans for over night, boiled them the next day, much less salt and tastes better. I also used frozen corn that we froze from fresh corn kernels. Made salsa with plum tomatoes, celery and jalapeno peppers. Melted cheese inside and outside enchiladas, cooked with enchilada sauce, it is a great recipe for a vegetarian dish.
