Trader Joe's Black Bean and Corn Enchiladas

Delicious. Cheap. Vegan. Three things that are very good when it comes to looking for things I can take to work for lunch.

I decided to give a couple of things from Trader Jose’s (Get it? Jose?) frozen goods and went with the black bean and corn enchiladas and I’m in love.

For about $2 you get two enchiladas that are dairy and wheat free.

Here’s what’s in them, some items in the sauce and some in the actual enchiladas (all items organic):

• White corn tortilla cooked in water with a hint of lime
• Tomatoes
• Soybeans
• Black beans
• Zucchini
• Yellow corn
• Onions
• Bell peppers
• Black olives (don’t let this stop you if you don’t like them — I had no clue they were in there)
• Garlic, green chiles spices, etc.

If you eat both (I mean, who doesn’t?) It has 8 grams of fat, 4 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein and small amounts of vitamins A&C and 10 percent of the RDA of calcium and iron.

So, the next time you’re at Trader Joe’s, give them a shot. You won’t be sorry!
