10. Sweet Potato Black Bean Vegetarian Enchiladas by Oven Struck

Oven Struck shares with us this vegetarian spin on enchiladas with drool-worthy photos all along the way. These look super healthy and delicious.  I can’t help but wonder how they’d be if I added a little chipotle pepper *makes a note for later*

4. Pork & Pineapple Tostadas by Karyl’s Kulinary Krusade

As you know, we don’t eat pork.  But if we did, these would be top of my list to try.  Chicken thighs would make a delicious pork substitute for a similar flavored tostada.
