Enchiladas always seem like too much work, but they are sooooo delicious that I'm giving them a try. It's true, they take some work but the final product is well worth the effort.
I tried these plant-based enchiladas before with store-bought enchilada sauce and it just didn't taste as good as I was expecting. So, this time I'm biting the bullet and making the sauce for these roasted veggie enchiladas almost from scratch. The sauce uses canned tomato puree and chili powder, and it’s delicious.
