These enchiladas are winter comfort food at its finest. Soft tortillas are filled with Mexican-spiced rice and black beans cooked in a spicy chipotle tomato sauce. Baking the enchiladas under a layer of Monterey Jack melts the cheese and allows the flavors to meld. Served on the side, Mexican crema brightened with lime tames the dish’s heat.
