Black Bean and Quinoa Enchiladas
[Editor's Note: This week's Quicker Dinners meal idea is an easy vegetarian option that's packed with nutrition, yet still has all the hallmarks of comfort food. It's a fantastic way to try out quinoa, too, if that's not something in your repertoire already. --Genie]

A delicious vegetarian meal, which is full of protein!
Start by cooking quinoa: Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add 1 cup quinoa. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
In a large skillet mix quinoa with 2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed), 1 cup shredded cheese (I like a mix of cheddar and colby) and 1 can enchilada sauce. Heat over medium until cheese melts.
Fill soft taco size tortillas with a heaping spoon of filling.
Roll to close. Place in a baking dish/pan, seam side down.
