Potato Enchiladas

I generally start my weekly meal plan by taking inventory of what I have on hand that needs to be used up. I had “tortillas” on the list and had written down bbq chicken quesadillas as a dinner option. I wanted another meatless meal on the menu, so I swapped the quesadillas for these enchiladas. Of course, one of the things that got lost in all that was that the tortillas were really huge burrito wraps – so instead of 6 normal-sized enchiladas, I ended up with 3 huge enchiladas (which got cut in half).

Oh well, they still tasted awesome! I was a little on the fence with the idea of mashed potatoes in enchiladas but these worked really well.

And, as today is Good Friday, it’s the finale for this year’s Meatless Lenten Fridays series. I hope you found it useful and that you’ll join me again for Lenten Fridays next year!
