 Another day, another Mexican sweet potato recipe.  I hope you all don’t mind because I could life off recipes like this!

I’ve had my spiralizer for a long time but just recently got really into using it.  Now, I want to spiralize everything because vegetable noodles are just more fun to eat :)

But, don’t fear if you don’t own a spiralizer.  These sweet potato enchilada bowls can easily be made with grated sweet potato rather than spiralized.  If you’re in the market for a spiralizer, I love this one!  You just need them thin enough to cook pretty quickly in a frying pan so you can get dinner on the table in 35 minutes!

    This is such a fabulous idea Izzy. I’m sure the texture of the sweet potato noodles makes this extra delicious, and as you say, fun. Appreciate the option you give to grate it though, since I don’t use a spiralizer. So want to make this when the weather cools down!

      Ironically the evenings turned cool late last week, so I used it as an excuse to make this enchilada bowl. And I was so glad I did! This was wonderful and I loved using shredded sweet potato for a change. I used pureed tomatoes with spices for the enchilada sauce and added a can of green chilies I wanted to use up. Thanks for the inspiration Izzy!
