When we go to Mexican restaurants, I mostly order veggie enchiladas and it is usually served with black beans and refried beans. After talking to my friend, I tried to create something similar at home and ended with this recipe. It uses minimal spices and is very easy to make. The picky eaters in the house also enjoyed it a lot. We had it along with enchiladas, but you can have rice too. The dish was creamy and had a touch of spice to it. Off to the recipe.

- onion - 1/2 cup - chopped
- bell pepper - 1/2 cup - chopped
