I’ve talked about my favorite restaurant back in Utah, right?

Milagros. It’s a little Mexican restaurant in Orem, and it’s oh so delicious. This tomatillo salsa was inspired by them.

I have yet to find a Mexican restaurant I enjoy as much as Milagros. One of my favorite things to get there was their veggie enchiladas.

I mean, I love meat. So if I choose something vegetarian, you know it’s gonna be good.

I loved the grilled veggies inside – I never even missed the meat.

Since we’ve been trying to eat healthier nad incorporate a few more meatless meals into our life, I thought it would be fun to make veggie enchiladas. We love sweet potatoes, so I incorporated those into this recipe along with black beans, and they turned out so good!

I picked up some Mountain High Original Style Plain Yogurt during Sprouts Better For You Brand Sale – where you can get 35% off yummy and better-for-you products – which I combined with some red enchilada sauce to make a creamy sauce.

I grilled up some red peppers and onions, and threw that together with some sweet potatoes, black beans, and cheese.

It was a really simple meal, but we all really enjoyed it – I think we ate the entire pan. The flavor was really yummy, and I was really sad we didn’t have leftovers for the next day. There was some excess sauce in the pan, which was great for scooping up with Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips!
