Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas with Pumpkin Sauce

The pumpkins have been so pretty this fall and delicious, maybe because we have had cooler weather, the meat of the pumpkin has been very sweet. I developed two new recipes for roasted pumpkin this fall Roasted Southwest Pumpkin Stew and these fabulous Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas. These Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas are just full of flavor with a wonderful Pumpkin Sauce to finish them. When I was making them my thought was that maybe we would have some left and freeze some for latter, well that didn't happen, we only had enough left for one lunch the next day, we loved these enchiladas and sure hope you do to!
