    College Girl's Note:

    I grew up loving spinach because of this recipe. This is one of my favorite meals and will always remain amazing! My mommy has made this for ages and it is completely satisfying. The filling can be prepared ahead and frozen or refrigerated, but drain any excess water.

      The whole family loved this one. I added two cubed chicken breasts to the spinach mixture. I also added the remaining one cup of whipping cream (From a quart) to the sauce and used two 13" x 9" pans, making 16 enchiladas. On the plate I poured some home made salsa verde on top of each one made with roasted poblano and jalapeno peppers, roasted tomatillos, onion, garlic, S&P, and cilantro. I will definitely make these again.

      This recipe got a two-star rating from my family because it just wasn't savory enough. Too much work for a meal that's on the bland side. It was healthy, yes -- but my omnivores were complaining about the lack of meat. IF I was to try this again, I'd add in cubed chicken and sour cream to the spinach filling.
