You guys, these Chorizo and Sweet Potato Enchiladas are pretty freaking amazing. Like serious. There is sweet potatoes, chorizo, green chile sauce, mozzarella and cotija cheese. They’ve got that whole spicy, sweet, cheesy, comforting thing going on. And they are going to knock your socks off.
I have a confession. Brace yourselves. It’s a doosey.
Wait for it.
I. Am. Not. A. Sweet. Potato. Fan. No sweet potato casserole. No sweet potato mash. And absolutely no sweet potato fries. EVER.
I just can’t do the sweetness. Especially the sweetness, when I’m expecting something salty like with french fries.
Yet, for some reason, I bought some the other day. Perhaps it has something to do with all of the health benefits I hear. And after a friend mentioned that they go well with chorizo, I thought I’d give it a try in some enchiladas. And amazingly, I loved them. Like devoured them. It’s something about the heat of the chorizo mixed with the sweetness of the potatoes I think.
I suppose the 2 cups of cheese doesn’t hurt either.
And while I’ll be making these over and over and over again this fall, I’m still not convinced I’ll ever pick sweet potato fries over good ol’ fashioned french fries. Just sayin…
