Butternut Squash and Black Bean Red Sauce Modelo Enchiladas

Happy (almost) Cinco de Mayo!

I feel like I can kind of be a Cinco de Mayo expert here because my husband is part Mexican (okay, fine, so about a fourth Mexican) and we have a Luchadoro piñata sitting in our garage waiting for the occasion. I’m giving away all of my Cinco de Mayo 2017 party secrets to any of my guests who may be reading this post, but it’s true. Luchadoro was found at a local store for $10 and we had to grab him. It was the first thing we decided to purchase when we walked in the store so we essentially carried him around everywhere. (Psst: I would’ve paid triple for this treasure.)
