  1. Oh, I love enchiladas! I have never made vegetarian enchiladas. Honestly, never even considered it, yet we have several vegetarians in the family. Your recipe sounds delicious. I will have to try it the next time my daughter and son-in-law come for dinner.

    1. Hi Cynthia, I'm not a vegetarian myself, but my son made these and they are delicious. Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Hi Sam, These look easy and delicious! Didn't know your son was a chef, but I bet you inspired him. Best, Donna

    1. Hi Donna, Actually he inspires me, the only problem is, when you are a chef I guess you don't have to clean up.
