Personal Notes:
Vegetarian enchiladas with mushroom and black beans is a favorite in my home. You may improvise with other fillings of veggies that you like. You may also substitute the home-made enchilada sauce with store bought enchilada sauce.

Enjoy it with your favorite wine or the classic margarita: equal parts tequila, orange liqueur and lime served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass .............
