Author Notes

Delicious vegan, gluten free enchiladas, can be tailored to individual tastes. I used Siete* gluten free products (as indicated below), but of course, you can replace with any sauces or tortillas or vegan cheese.

*Siete Foods is an amazing company with healthy, grain-free, available at many stores and online. —Carol P.
