  1. To make the filling, combine the onions, garlic, jalapeno and olive oil in a medium pan, and sautee over medium heat for about 5 minutes until they are softened and fragrant.
  2. Add the spices and sautee a minute more, then add the lime juice, salt, black beans and pumpkin and cook until heated through.  Mix in the cilantro and 1/3 of the bag of Daiya cheddar.
  3. Oil a 9×9 inch baking dish. Pour half the enchilada sauce into it.
  4. Lay out each tortilla and spoon the filling down the center of it, then fold the sides around it to cover it. Place the tortillas folded side down in the dish.  Pour the enchilada sauce over the top, then top with the remaining cheese.
  5. Place in a 375F degree oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until it is bubbling and heated through.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes before serving.
