Meal Prep Enchiladas with corn and avocado.

Enchiladas are my go to for a easy and delicious meal. These Meal Prep Enchiladas were born right out of pure laziness. I didn’t feel like cooking the night before, so one morning I woke up a little earlier than usual, cooked up some onion, green peppers, and ground beef, and though I’ll just wrap this in a tortilla put it in my meal prep container, cover in sauce and cheese and I’ll be good to go. Why should I cook this just to stick it back in the fridge? Great ideas are born out of laziness I tell you.
