Nothing beats Mexican food and this Yummy Chicken Enchilada Casserole is just another example of how delicious this culture’s food truly is. Try this dish any time. It is perfect even in the heat of summer where you can serve it at room temperature, and is fabulous in mid-winter where the rich and filling cheese and chicken hits the right spot to warm you up. The recipe includes chicken, cheese and beans, an excellent combination of great foods to help keep you healthy and strong, too.

The recipe blogger, Lindsay, recommends refried black beans rather than the often recommended pinto beans. Both beans are an excellent choice. Black beans hold plenty of protein, are low in fat, sodium and cholesterol and filled with lots of good vitamins and minerals. Brazil, which grows more black beans than any other country in the world (except, possibly, India) has placed black beans in to their own food group because of their unique contribution to human health. They recommend eating black beans every day, in part because of the research that links the lowered risk of Type 2 diabetes, reduction in various kinds of cardiovascular disease and cancers to eating black beans. American dietary guidelines regarding legume consumption are not much different recommending three cups each week to eat. So eat your beans!

This dish is a lovely combination of foods that taste good and are good for you, a perfect blend of ingredients for you and your family. The recipe comes together quickly and you can be serving this dish soon, especially if you use rotisserie chicken (saves on a lot of cooking time). It is also cheap and cost effective, particularly because beans are just so cheap to buy. So enjoy some enchiladas soon!
