These clean eating black bean enchiladas are dairy free and totally, deliciously filling.

I know many of you are dairy free. I’m vegan myself, so you won’t find the use of milk on my site these days. Plant-based milk… yes. Dairy milk… no. There’s just so much information out there these days that shows it was never meant for human consumption anyway. So it’s super easy for me to avoid despite having loved it my entire life. Especially cheese!

Clean Eating Black Bean Enchiladas Recipe

A lot of Mexican-style food has cheese in it, and while I have used plant-based cheeses in the past, it’s not something I eat a lot of these days either. So these enchiladas are made with not cheese at all.

Now if you prefer cheese, you can definitely feel free to add it wherever you’d like. Mix some in with the filling and then sprinkle it over the top just prior to baking. Some cheddar cheese would go super well with this! But it’s not necessary. These were delicious enchiladas without it!
