Enchilada pie and congratulations...

This post is for enchilada pie and a congratulations to my daughter! This recipe was originally a Veganomicon recipe. It was the potato and kale enchiladas. Dahlia didn't like the idea of potato and kale. I didn't like rolling enchiladas. So, they turned into black bean and corn enchilada pie. Dahlia is quite talented when it comes to food. I am hoping to get some of her bread recipes up here because, they are amazing! I made this enchilada pie the other day.
Dahlia is a really great cook. We have been cooking together since she was very young. She makes some really great and unusual breads. Like a brown sugar and beer bread, feather bread, I love it when Dahlia is around because, I get to eat all kinds of fresh bread!
Dahlia has really helped me out a lot when it comes to this blog and my shop on etsy because, she is really great at computers. She is very smart and creative, she also has a lot of common sense. She is great at 3 dimensional art from sculptures to building sets, knits, crochets, can make all kinds of things out of rope and string.I really feel like I lucked out in many ways. She can even use power tools and prevented me from cutting my own leg off with the hedge clippers. Dahlia did not skip school, she got pretty good grades. Didn't really get in too much trouble as far as I know. As you know if you have been reading this blog she is now in college hopefully having a great time. So, I just wanted to say to her. Congratulations and thank you! for all your help! Plus, share this recipe...
