Sweet Potato Enchiladas...

Mexican food is a constant in our home! We love tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and nachos. And whenever I can add a new Mexican dish to our menu, I'm ecstatic. A year or so ago, I stumbled across a dish called Sweet Potato Enchiladas. I've made my own twists and tweaks with this recipe and we LOVE it! So I thought I'd share it today.

Sweet Potato Enchiladas....

6 sweet potatoes
1 and 1/2 packages 8oz cream cheese
4 green onions
2 teaspoons of chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
12 corn tortillas
1 19oz can of red enchiladas sauce
1 1/2 packages of shredded cheddar cheese

Directions: (pre-heat oven to 350 degrees)
1. Bring large pot of water to boil and boil sweet potatoes until tender; about 30 mins.
2. Cool and peel the sweet potatoes
3. Place potatoes in a bowl with softened cream cheese and mash with blender on medium speed
4. Add green onions (diced) chili powder, dried oregano, and garlic salt
5. Blend until smooth
6. Heat oil in skillet and warm corn tortillas
7. Place your desired amount of sweet potato filling down the center of each tortilla. Roll and place, seam down, in prepared baking dish
8. Pour enchiladas sauce over tortillas and sprinkle with cheese
