Skinny Turkey & Black Bean Enchiladas

We love Mexican food and could eat it twice a week if we wouldn't become 300lbs. Enchiladas are my entree of choice and I get so excited when I find "skinny" recipe. Okay so I didn't get the best pictures because they were gooey and cheesy but while eating Jon and I were staring at eat other pretty much saying "is this real life?". These enchies are UH-MAYZING! Make them now!
