These vegetarian enchiladas will surprise you. The first time I made them was one day when my refrigerator was running low on supplies and there was practically nothing to make for dinner. I remember that I used what I had on hand and I was nervous about how it would all turn out. My creation was a total hit and my family loved it. Now I make this recipe very frequently since it’s perfect for those days when we don’t want to eat meat. You can prepare it ahead of time and bake it just before you’re ready to eat. Enjoy!
