A tasty Mexican dish with added twist of kale. In this enchilada recipe, I replaced the usual flour tortilla with kale. Kale rolls are stuffed with beef, black beans, cheese, sour cream and spices and baked to perfection in our gluten free green enchilada sauce. When you feel like Mexican food, try this scrumptious, healthy gluten and grain free enchilada recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 large kale leaves
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 ¼ cups cooked black beans (if using canned, rinse and drain)

  • ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 cups green enchilada sauce (recipe on our website) or you can buy GF green enchilada sauce in a jar
  • Instructions
