Our hearty vegetarian enchiladas are filled with a combination of fragrant, Mexican-spiced rice and sautéed mushrooms and kale. For even more flavor, we’re baking them under a smoky-sweet tomato sauce flavored with ancho chile paste and a layer of melty white cheddar. A dollop of lime-seasoned sour cream adds creamy, cooling balance. (You may receive green curly, dark green lacinato, or red kale.)
