Potato Enchiladas? Really?
Being a former New Mexican, I never would have thought of using potatoes for Enchilada Filling, but I was so wrong!
With the addition of mushrooms, and a little dab of Tofu Sour Cream on top these potato enchiladas are the BOMB!
Oh my gosh – and the sauce…… Who knew homemade enchilada sauce could be so easy and tasty.
When my daughter and wife go back for seconds, you know it’s good.
