When I eat an entire pan of enchiladas myself, I know that I have to share the recipe. Not only did I eat the entire pan myself, but I was actually sad to see the last one gone – that’s not how I usually feel after days of eating the same thing over and over again. Trust me, these are goooooooood. Gina’s Skinny Taste recipe for Butternut Squash and Black Bean Enchiladas took longer to make than most of my weeknight dinners but it was worth the wait. I ate myself sick the first night (they were so good, I just couldn’t stop), and they tasted even better the second day for lunch and the following night for dinner. I filled my tortillas a little fatter than she did and topped mine with fresh avocado, but otherwise followed her recipe to the letter. Don’t wait long to make a pan of these!
Why decide on one restaurant when you can go to three? For a leisurely evening out, consider making your own progressive dinner party! A good friend and I just did this in my South Minneapolis neighborhood and had a blast, here’s what we did.
First things first, we stopped at Town Hall Lanes for a stuffed pretzel and were pleasantly surprised to find this:
After sampling some cider with our pretzels, we walked a few doors down to one of the best kept secrets in Minneapolis, 3 Tiers. Who says you have to save dessert for last?
We ended our adventures across the street at my favorite Mexican restaurant, Dominguez for some veggie taquitos:
With the return of warm weather, I can’t imagine a better way to spend an evening.
