Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas with Quick Homemade Enchilada Sauce

You have got to try this!  I was really surprised how easy this homemade enchilada sauce was to make and how much of a difference it makes!  I thought it had much deeper flavor and was totally worth the 10 minutes (plus I love knowing exactly what is in it!).

1 sweet potato, diced
1 cup mushrooms, quartered
1 red pepper, sliced
1 pablano pepper, sliced
1 small zucchini, diced
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 cup black beans
8 corn tortillas
enchilada sauce, below
1-2 cups shredded cheese

Toss veggies with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper if desired and roast for 20-25 minutes at 400 until tender, tossing once midway.  Add about 1/3 cup enchilada sauce to bottom of baking dish and spread to cover bottom of pan.  Divide black beans and veggies between tortillas and rolls them tightly, placing them next to each other in the dish. When finished, cover the tortillas with the remaining sauce and cheese. Bake for 30 minutes at 350, until the cheese is golden and melted on top.
