This is GREAT!! I bought the corn tortillas instead of flour and I was in search of a recipe so I caould use them and I found this one. Everyone loved it, use froozen spinach as one other perosn did. I will make this again and again. I'm glad I bought the wrong tortillas.

I loved the recipe, it was quite tasty. I only had one cup green chiles, and added green salsa verde for the other half. The only thing I wish was different was the fat and calorie content. A little high for my taste.

I thought this had a great flavor. I used 2 bags of baby spinach so I didn't have to do any chopping. My kids, who don't like spinach, all thought this was good and my husband loved it. Thanks for the recipe.*Update* Made this for the judges at a gymnastics competition and everyone wanted the recipe!! It turned out great. Served it with fresh guacamole and salsa.
