These are excellent enchiladas. Yes, there really is spinach in them! They are very rich and very filling, you will be stuffed. My husband and I got them from my sister-in-law. My husband raved about them and then told me there was spinach in them and wanted me to try them. I told him he was crazy. Well I tried them and they are so good, and I don't even like spinach and he doesn't either. You have to try these!!! You will love them!

Delicious! I broiled my chicken breast and then shredded them. I found it easiest to mix the filling by using my hands (with food gloves on). It helped disperse the cream cheese better than mixing with a wooden spoon. I didn't feel like mixing up taco seasoning so I used 1 1/2 Tbls. of Mrs. Dash's Fiesta Lime seasoning. I accidentally only bought one can of enchilada sauce but it didn't seem to matter. Everyone loved them. I served them with black beans. Will make again. Thanks!
- 16 ounces sour cream
- 8 ounces cream cheese (you can use 1/3 less fat, it still taste great)

- 4 boneless chicken breasts (or you could use 1 whole chicken, deboned)
- 1 1⁄4 ounces taco seasoning (or 1-2 tablesppons of homemade taco seasoing which is what I use)
