Enchiladas can be filled with whatever your heart desires and baked to perfection. So, why not go the seasonal route, like these pumpkin enchiladas with a filling of creamy sweet potato and pumpkin. The ingredient list is not on the short side, but once you've got the ball rolling, they come together pretty quickly. They can also be made in advance for a simple warming healthy meal for later in the week — vegan cheese optional, but highly recommended.
