I love Mexican food. One of the reasons is their similarity to some of the Indian dishes.

For the first time I tried Mexican cuisine was in New Delhi, India. I felt quite delighted after eating it. At that time my idea of Mexican cuisine was just limited to Tacos, chips, salsa and burritos. Also I had no idea how to cook Mexican food.

It was 10 years later when I moved to Canada, I came to know about a number of other Mexican dishes and started making them at home.

Here I am sharing recipe of Vegetarian Enchiladas. An enchilada is a flour or corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a savory sauce. Enchiladas can be filled with various ingredients, including meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables, or combinations.

Do try this recipe and let me know if you like it.
