This recipe for spinach enchiladas shows you how to make healthy and filling spinach enchiladas with flour tortillas. Baked with mushrooms and cheese along with chicken stock for flavor, the spinach enchiladas make for a full meal with added toppings and a side of fried beans.
  Flour tortillas 12
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Sour cream 8 Ounce
  Diced onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Fresh spinach 1 Pound
  Sliced mushrooms 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Chicken stock 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Jalapeno slices 1 (For Garnish)
  Pepper To Taste

Heat oven to 350 F.

Begin by melting butter in a deep skillet and add flour stirring until well blended.

With a whisk blend in the sour cream.

In a large 6 quart pot heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat (#6).

Saute onion about one minute.

Add in whole bag of fresh spinach. Cover and cook for about five minutes. Spinach will cook way down.

Prepare a baking sheet or 13” x 9” pan by spraying with canola spray oil.

Preheat the tortillas according package directions. (I typically wet 4 paper towels and wrap around the flour tortillas and place in the microwave 30 seconds to 1 minute. You just want to soften them.)

On a plate, place a flour tortilla. Fill with a spoonful of the spinach and mushrooms. Top with Jalapeno-Jack cheese and roll. Place seem side down on the baking sheet. Try using a toothpick if they will not stay rolled. Continue with remaining tortillas.

Pour the sour cream sauce across the tops of the enchiladas.

Top with additional cheese, jalapeno slices, black olives or fresh cilantro for garnish.

Bake in the oven about 10 minutes or enough to heat and melt the cheese inside the enchiladas.
