I do love a good enchilada but I like to switch up the flavors to keep it interesting. Today was just the nicest day I have seen in such a long time, it was warm and sunny all day and me and my mom spent pretty much every minute outside doing one thing or another whether it was going for a run, walking the crazy doggies or working on the garden.

It was heavenly, I have been in the best  mood all day and that also reflected on my dinner making as well. I wanted something fresh and summery and this fit the bill to a tee. It is sweet yet spicy with a tang from the mustard and packed with veggies and all that good stuff. It was such a good change from original enchiladas and I will definitely be making it lots more in the near future.
