1 & 2.  Black Bean and Quinoa enchiladas
3 & 4. Black Eyed Pea Burgers: I used the recipe for my Sweet Potato Quinoa Black Bean Burgers w/ Cranberries and subbed black eyed peas for black beans and red peppers for cranberries. They were just ok. I was using up leftover black eyed peas but i really don’t like them very much. The original burger is much better!

For the Enchiladas: I just kinda threw it together but here’s my best guess: 1 c quinoa, 2 cups cooked black beans, 1 red pepper- diced, 1/2 c onion- diced, 1 can low sodium cream of mushroom soup, a handful of shredded mexican cheese, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2- 1 tsp cayenne pepper. saute the peppers and onions for a few minutes until soft. put them in a bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well. grease a pan and pour a little enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan. spoon the bean/quinoa mixture into 4 or 5 whole wheat tortillas and place seam side down in the pan. pour a little enchilada sauce on top and spread with a brush so the tops of all the tortillas are covered. sprinkle with cheese, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

We thought about going out for dinner because we were SO hungry. Instead we came home & made this dinner in under 15 min- panini with two eggs, homemade guac, peppers, onion, tomato & cheese on whole wheat bread, plus fresh fruit and a big salad! Saved us money and was easy, healthy and delicious!
