Chicken Enchiladas with Black Beans and Spanish Rice

Enchiladas are kind of like lasagne --- time consuming to make, but always always worth it. If you don't have time to cook chicken, substituting a rotisserie chicken makes these enchiladas super easy to put together. Make these in the morning and spend the rest of the day stress free knowing dinner is only 15 minutes away. You can't have enchiladas without beans and rice, so these two side dishes complete the meal.
