    TexasKK's Note:

    Tired of heavy, cheesy enchiladas? Want to feel less guilty about eating really good Mexican food? Well ... these are not fat free but are vegetarian and VERY tasty. The grilling of the vegetables takes some time but they are well worth the effort!

      I have been wanting to try this for a long time. I am giving this a 4 because the hubby loved it and I thought it was ok. I think there needs to be some adjustments, but will work very well with them. It's a great idea for throwing more veggies in our diets. I would grill the veggies over coals and chop them roughly after grilling. I would use canned green enchilada sauce instead of the sauce in the recipe (it was too time consuming and too watery -- the tortillas turned out mushy and not like a "casserole"). I would like to up the poblano to one more. I would really like to work with this recipe and try out these changes and let you know if it worked out. I also used sweet frozen corn and only one red bell pepper. Thanks for the addition to our dinners!
