At Foost we have been writing and developing recipes for over 15 years and I have to say this is one of our finest. Our sweet potato and black bean enchiladas are perfect for any night of the week. Whilst children may not like it first try (there is a lot of texture happening), serve it with some plain sides they like whilst they learn.
