Shrimp and Black Bean Enchiladas

 

 You like what you see?
This is my take on Enchiladas.
This applies to my gluten free eaters out there!
Okay, so I LOVE enchiladas but sadly my husband doesn’t care too much for them so I don’t make these often, but I wanted to share this recipe with you. These are my Shrimp and Black Bean Enchiladas
 
Recipe:
 
2 cans of black beans (I use La Preferida brand)
2 cups of salad shrimp
1/2 bag of spinach
1/2 onion
1 tomato
2 cans of enchilada sauce (I use La Victoria)
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 block of cheese ( I use blocks of cheese not pre-shedded) 
1 pack of corn tortillas
cilantro
black pepper
salt
Cayenne
garlic powder
extra virgin olive oil
Lightly sautee shrimp and add beans, spinach, onions, tomato in a medium sized pot. Add half of your cilantro, black pepper, salt, Cayenne, and garlic powder to mixture. While that is cooking, use a small frying pan and heat up some olive oil. Lightly fry the shells, about 5 seconds on each side. Only fry as many shells with how many enchiladas you want to make (I made about 20).
Put enchilada sauce in a medium sized bowl. Add honey and black pepper. Place half of the bowl of sauce into a baking dish, spreading it around the bottom. Fill each shell with your filling, rolling it and placing it into the dish. Once all shells are filled, pour the rest of the sauce onto the enchiladas. 
Shred cheese and spread across enchiladas. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until all of cheese is melted. Remove dish and sprinkle with remainder of cilantro. 
ENJOY!!!!!

Warm Welcome

First post of my new blog, here it goes….

Just to give you a brief overview of my life so far: I got married to my wonderful husband this past March and it was what I considered the beginning of my new life so that’s why I will only start from there, no further back. We went to Disney World for our honeymoon because for one, I love Disney and two, my husband had never been to Disney so it was pure magic! We came back and bought our first home together; two floors and right on the water. Now we come to the present.

I named my blog “Journey of a Housewife” for several reasons: I love being a housewife; I love taking special care of my husband; I love to cook; and I simply love life and want to share several aspects of my life with you all. My main focus will be cooking for all of you foodies out there. I can’t wait to share all of my food ideas but to warn you, I have several food restrictions personally for my health and the health of my husband so I use less sugar in recipes and less fat. I cook special things for my husband but for myself, I try to be gluten-free so recipes will vary.

Thank you so much for reading my long story and hope you all enjoy this journey with me!
