Vegan Fajita Enchiladas

If anyone knows the Kimbrell family, they know how much they LOVE Mexican food. Between the flavors of cilantro, lime and spices, they could eat it every night (and they often do). Dr. Matt likes to incorporate a “meatless” lifestyle as much as possible. This recipe is often a “go to” on a busy weeknight. The kids love it too!
