Spinach Enchiladas

When we order take out Mexican from our local place my sweetheart always orders the spinach enchiladas. I used a canned refried bean with fire roasted chiles and a microwave pouch of brown rice which I added cumin, cilantro and salsa to.

12oz of frozen spinach

1/4 of a chopped white onion


Chipotle chili powder


4oz Cream Cheese


Shredded jack cheese

Green enchilada sauce( I use frontera)

Sour Cream

I put the spinach in the microwave until it is no longer frozen, about 3 minutes. I let it cool then squeeze out all the water. I put some olive oil in a large non stick skillet and saute the onions until tender, add your spinach and saute a few minutes, add cumin, chipotle powder, salt and cream cheese stir until the cream cheese is incorporated. Take it off the heat and set it aside. Wrap your tortillas in plastic wrap and microwave for 12 seconds until soft enough to bend without breaking. Spray a baking dish with some cooking spray. Whisk your green sauce and sour cream together and add cilantro if you like.Pour some sauce in the bottom of your baking dish. Sprinkle some cheese on each tortilla, add your spinach filling and roll them closed and place them seam side down in your dish. Pour your sauce over the top and cover with foil I bake 20 minutes covered and top them with more cheese and bake for 20 minutes uncovered.
