WHAT I MADE TONIGHT: Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas

I made a delicious batch of enchiladas tonight from the below recipe. Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas. So much more satisfying than plain cheese enchiladas. Mine weren't made with vegan sour cream and I added cheese. Im vegetarian but definitely not vegan.
