Sweet Potato & Black Bean Enchiladas-med
Right from the start, the originality and flavor profile of this recipe made it a standout for VT taste testers. "My wife and I eat this dish a lot in the fall and winter months. We make it when we're having guests (vegetarian and not) because we know everyone will enjoy it," explains James McNulty. "It can be made the night before and it travels well, so it's great for a potluck or a holiday party."
