I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July! I decided to take a break and skip posting over the holiday weekend!
We took a fun trip to Mankato to visit my sister for part of the weekend! It was a blast!
We spent Saturday morning at the Mankato Farmer's Market and I bought these gorgeous black raspberries along with some kohlrabi, garlic scapes and peas!
Then we decided to venture to the cute German town of New Ulm!
We ate at a tasty Mexican restaurant, climbed to the top of the "Herman the German" monument and watched the Glockenspiel clock, then stopped at the Minneopa State Park on our way back to view the waterfall!
If you're ever in the Mankato, Minnesota area, the Minneopa waterfall is a must see!
Make sure you wear your hiking shoes because it's quite the trip to get to the bottom of the waterfall, where we took our family picture!
We came back Sunday and had a BBQ at our house on Monday for the 4th!
The city fireworks are visible from our front yard, so every year we have a BBQ with family and friends and all watch the fireworks together!
It's one of my favorite days of the year!
Now onto today's delicious recipe! Beefy Black Bean Enchilada Bake!
I'm all about everything Mexican food and this recipe is so easy and flavorful!
It was a hit with my Dad, Stepmom and boyfriend and we will defintely put it in the regular menu rotation!
You saute most of the ingredients, layer it in a baking dish with tortillas and cheese, then off to the oven!
It is simple to make and would also be a great freezer meal!
I'm going to give it a try with chicken or ground turkey when I have those on hand instead of beef.
You can top it with sour cream, salsa or taco sauce and a sprinkling of chopped cilantro!
SO good! I hope it's a new favorite at your house!
Thanks for stopping by today and I always appreciate you following along with me!
