Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas

I know this sounds a little weird but it is very good and low in calories if you use low calorie torts like la factory tortillas i love them only 100 cals! i know the pumpkin pie spice sounds weird too but i didn't even taste it and it goes well with the sweet potatoes too.

  1. Those look delicious! I love the sweet potato black bean combo and I've been wanting to make veggie enchiladas for so long! I love that these are fairly simple. I'm going to save this to try soon :)

  2. awesome! they are pretty easy they just take a bit to prep

  3. I think I want this for supper...but we're going to be on the road today. Guess I'll just have to dream of them!

  4. These look and sound delicious!

  5. I have a serious thang for enchiladas...and these look wonderful!

  6. Mmmm...these look amazing! I love anything with sweet potatoes in them...I can't wait to give these a try! :)

  7. do you need to pre cook the sweet potatoes before you bake them? i'm sure this is a dumb question! These look great! can't wait to try them!

  8. no you don't need to. its not a dumb question lol

  9. made my own version using butternut squash instead of sweet potato. cooked the squash with sauteed onions then let them simmer with a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes before adding the black beans. the cumin and pumpkin spice really brought the ingredients together. served with cheese and sour creme. amazing recipe!

  10. Black beans and sweet potatoes are such a nice combo!
