    YnkyGrlDwndr's Note:

    I've been making this recipe on an off for years. First found it on the back of a tortilla packet. I've tweaked it a few times now. If you want you can add a small can of chicken, or a cooked chicken breast shredded up. I've done this and it goes well. I use Texas Red Enchilada Sauce Texas Red Enchilada Sauce.

      I agree they were a little bland next time I will add more onions, garlic and more seasonings. Will make again. Very easy. I think next time I might try green sause as well. Thanks for a good recipe!

      I love spinach enchiladas so I made these last night. I adjusted the recipe a little to fit my weight watchers plan and added jalapenos (cause I like things spicy). I also used green enchilada sauce instead of red. But they are awesome! Thank you so much for posting the recipe. I love the spinach enchiladas that they serve at a local mexican restaurant but could never find a recipe that was this close! Thanks again for a recipe that will be a new favorite! Tina

      Made these last night to balance out some spicier chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce... a good combo. I, too, used Mark Hendrick's enchilada sauce recipe (42094), and chose ricotta. Because there were two "unspoken for" 9 oz. pkgs. of fresh spinach in the fridge, I used them in place of the frozen. Also, softened the corn tortillas ever-so-quickly in hot oil. Next time, I'll load the filling with garlic, and (at least) double the spring onions. It seemed to need just a little bit of help with the seasonings. My dinner guests sure enjoyed them...me too!...Grammy Bunny
