    I like this a lot!! I added 1 tsp cilantro, 1 tsp lime juice, 1/2 tsp of salt, some pepper, and 1/2 tsp of chicken bouillon to the sauce. For the filling, I added a 1/2 tsp garlic boullion, 1/4 tsp of smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp of salt, some pepper, and instead of a can of black beans, I crumbled up three black bean burgers for extra protein and flavor. I ended up cooking the filling for probably 10-ish minutes because I wanted it nice and soft. I also cooked in the oven for closer to 45 minutes to get more texture. Topped with vegan cheese and sour cream. Super good!! Don't be afraid of the curry- I think it adds a great flavor that is unique. Next time would try adding oregano to the filling.

    Super yum. Made a lot of changes. Added shredded zucchini, red pepper, garlic, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Used veggie stock instead of water. Really good.

    Not bad, a bit bland. I too would add corn and some garlic as well. I would like it spicier so I would add some hatch red chile sauce. Also vegan sour cream would be nice.
    This was the trial run for this recipe. As a last minute decision I decided to add a few extras. After heating shredded s. potaties I added some corn and light red beans. The kids loved it. (however there is always a picky one that is indifferent. We worked through it.) It was pretty much a hit. Next time, because I yummed it to use it often, I will try to take out 5he corn and use dark red beans to give it a fuller taste. I found it a little less savory than sweet. Good though!

    Very tasty and healthy

    Very good! I recommend getting Mexican diced tomatoes with cilantro. It adds a little spice and additional “umph” to the recipe. When you purée that with the sweet potato, it makes a slightly spicy but sweet sauce for your enchiladas. Very savory. Really enjoyed this recipe. Little tweaks like that really push it to the next level!

    This receipe did not turn out for me, it was dry and not very flavor full. The corn tortillas also were very hard roll and stay together. The sauce was like a thick paste.

    Very filling if you add rice! Was full for the whole day, super tasty and the sauce is just great!

    Really good and super easy to make , I added a few additional ingredients like nutritional yeast to give the sauce a nutty cheesier flavor

    This recipe is ok. I made a lot of changes: 1) reading other reviews, omitted curry 2) for the sauce, instead of mixing the mashed sweet potato with unsalted tomatoes, i mixed the sweet potato with 2 c of homemade enchilada sauce 3) sprinkled sharp cheddar on top before baking 4) subbed collards for spinach (we like the way they hold up to heat better) Overall, a very nutritious and easy meal. It probably needs more salt and SOME kind of spice to cut through the sweet potato (maybe not curry, though)

    I like curry but it didn't go well with sweet potato😞 I don't think I would make this again.,sorry wasn't crazy about this dish

    Why have all of the ingredients been duplicated? Sort that out. Also I added enough curry to suit my taste so if yours has too much curry then it's not necessarily the recipes fault.

    This had way too much curry! The recipe looked good, but we could not eat it. Guess I was expecting a more Mexican taste. Will not try again.
