      Really good flavor. I did use garlic and chopped cilantro in the filling along with some chopped sauted mushrooms. I also used more cilantro and garlic n the cream sauce. Still very Good. Thanks!

      very tasty - but a little bland. I spiced it up by adding a small can of chopped chile peppers, a teaspoon of cumin and double the cilantro. I also did a chicken version by sauteing some boneless chicken breasts (about a pound) and chopping that into bite sized pieces. Then I used only two boxes of frozen spinach and added the chicken in at that point. I also used the above mentioned "spiced up" ingredients. For cheese I used the bagged shredded "mexican cheese" mix. I served both (chicken & vegetarian options) at a family party. Both were a BIG hit, but the favorite hands down was the chicken version.
