Bean, Cheese, and Vegetable Enchiladas

The cold front finally came in. It’s deliciously cool outside, slightly rainy, and feels like autumn.

I am always excited for this kind of weather because some of my favorite meals seem to call for cold weather outside in order to enjoy them to their full potential.

With spicy undertones and creamy filling, these vegetarian enchiladas fit the bill for just this kind of evening.

    • They are so easy. One thing I love about these is they don’t need a complicated sauce to go on top as the filling does both jobs. I like the texture of the crispy tortillas as well. This would be a great starter recipe! :)

      • I made these tonight! We made them for a main course, substituting BBQ chicken brast for the beans, I think beans or a mix would be really good too, loved the flavour! We added some condiments, salsa, yougurt, and a green tomato relish. Thank-you for your recipe! :)
