I created this recipe by trying to recreate these great enchiladas I had at LaFrontera in Salida, Co. They are a yummy vegetarian main course and also make a good side dish.
- 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen spinach
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
- 1 cup chopped green onion
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 10 white corn tortillas (you may need more or less depending on how much filling you put into each enchilada)
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can green enchilada sauce
- 1 1⁄2 cups sour cream
- 1 cup shredded monterey jack pepper cheese
- Mix spinach, garlic, green onions, cream cheese, and monterey jack cheese in large bowl.
- Place approximately 3 tbsp of spinach mixture into the center of each tortilla and roll them up.
- Place filled tortillas side by side seam side down in casserole dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile mix enchilada sauce and sour cream in small saucepan simmer over low to medium heat stirring frequently.
- Cover with Shredded Pepper Jack cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Remove enchiladas from oven and cover with sauce mixture serve immediately.
I used flour tortillas and thought these were great! I did add some spice to it by adding about 2-3 TBSP of jarred sliced jalepenos to the enchilada sauce/sour cream mixture adn used the new Sargento Spicy Mexican Cheese in the filling! It was great! I think you could easily shred two chix breasts into this or use a pre done rotisserie chicken in the filling!
Freakin' great! Followed except used whole wheat tortillas, and added some cayenne and jalapenos to the spinach/cheese mixture to give it a boost. Felt like it needed just a bit of kick. Great recipe, and loved the cream cheese in the mixture. Thanks for posting!
Not enough flavor for me. The sauce tasted great though.
