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.

  • 1 onion, chopped and sauteed
  • 2 zucchinis, shredded
  • kernels from two heads of corn
  • 3 avocados, cubed
