No, it's not too hot out.

The recipe here is based on a dish created by Los Angeles chef Josef Centeno’s great-grandmother, who raised 12 kids. Because meat was expensive, she often made enchiladas using only vegetables, like carrots and potatoes. For his enchiladas, Centeno makes a sofrito, cooking carrots low and slow in olive oil with garlic and tomatoes.

When it's hot outside and turning on the oven is the last thing you want to do, enchiladas are still a terrific option.
