Vegan Enchiladas

I’m proud of myself for cooking at all this week…adjusting to a new work schedule is always tough, but I need to continue to make my vegan meals a priority.  I have made this enchilada recipe several times, and it is one of my favorites. It’s a perfect meal to cook during the week because the left overs are great for lunch and dinner the next day. In my recipe book I have it listed as ‘Protein Monster Vegan Enchiladas;’ with the beans, hemp hearts, and spinach it is packed with protein.
