Sweet potato, black bean, and swiss chard enchiladas con cilantro crema

Caterer Tim the Girl and Chuck Hernandez of Arugula Catering started the non-profit organization EatSmart SA as a way to share with San Antonio their knowledge of nutrition and food preparation. In collaboration with local physician-assistant students, EatSmart SA presents this ongoing series of recipes to promote nutritious and tasty eating options. (Look for EatSmart SA on Facebook and check out for more information.)


Sweet Potato, Black Bean, and Swiss Chard Enchiladas con Cilantro Crema


With all the nice greens coming in for spring this is a great way to lighten up the traditional Tex-Mex gut-plugging enchilada. Pull the last of the sweet potatoes out of the root cellar (or your local market) and pick any nice baby spring greens up at the farmers market, along with some fresh cilantro, and try these out. — Tim the Girl
