VEGETABLE ENCHILADAS

I love Mexican food.  Even though I'm Indian, Mexican food is our household staple.  We eat it like four times a week.  Its just so easy and you can insert basically any veggies you want.  These enchiladas are inspired by my best friend's mom.  Anytime we are all home for the holidays, she'll make us enchiladas and 7-layer dip.  To this day, I have no clue what goes in those delicious enchiladas, but here is my version inspired by essentially my second mom.
