Good recipe- shows that unconventional combinations can work if you are adventurous! I think it would be great as is, so please don't think my modification are b/c I think the recipe needs changes! I made some adjustments b/c I wasn't going to the store to buy just 2 ingredients! I didn't have any cream cheese so I omitted that ingredient. I would have used it if I had it! If you have it (I didn't), a mexican style crumbly cheese would work good here too. Instead (again, I was working with what I had in stock), I added cooked ground pork (breakfast sausage seasoned) into the sweet potato filling. I know it sounds odd, but it works. I made beans the other day and cooked down the remaining liquid which was flavored with bacon, cilantro, salt, onions, and serrano peppers. I added a few tablespoons of the liquid into the filling to make it more of a savory flavor. (my sweet potato was REALLY sweet). Also, I used verde sauce instead b/c for some reason I had a can of it in the pantry and wanted to use it up. I really recommend frying the tortillas. This keeps the enchiladas from becoming mush. The enchiladas just don't come out the same if you don't. I know it's not low fat, but I would skimp on the cheese instead of skipping the frying to reduce fat content. That's of course just my opinion! For a less sweet enchilada I would recommend using pumpkin in place of the sweet potato and sprinkling pepitas on the top of the finished enchiladas.
