Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas

Recipe by Chef 495452

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!
