Growing up, my family always had enchiladas for special occasions. It was a tradition that we all looked forward to, and we would spend the whole day in the kitchen cooking together. My mom would make the traditional beef or chicken enchiladas, but as I've grown older, I've started experimenting with different ingredients. These Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas are now a favorite in my household, and I hope they become a tradition in yours too.
