We enjoyed these enchiladas, like someone else said, Italian and Mexican all rolled up in one. I had fresh spinach so just waited until the end of the cooking and tossed handfuls in and just wilted it. I had to use half green and half red sauce on top since I accidentally picked up two different kinds. Thanks Duboo.
I love spinach, chicken and cheese together with pasta and a good pasta sauce, but did not like it with enchilada sauce.
Excellent!! I added green peppers and mushrooms to the mix as well. I couldn't find the enchilada sauce in the grocery store, so I used pasta sauce instead.
My husband and I really enjoyed this unique enchilada idea. Spice was right where I like it, a bit of a kick but not "hot."
What a terrific way to marry Italian and Mexican. Great recipe. Wouldn't change a thing, except that I would recommend greasing the baking dish. We actually got 6 enchiladas in this batch. I made 3 with hot enchilada sauce and 3 mild. I also put some sauce on the bottom of the baking dish before I put the enchiladas in. Thanks Duboo for a great recipe!
very good, but I would use fresh spi nach or just half of frozen spinach-only because I don't care for the taste of frozen
Hubby made these the other day, added 8oz of sautéed mushrooms to the recipe and we thought it was wonderful. Would definitely make again.
I loved it. We added some red peppers, upped the onion and garlic a bit, as well as using fresh spinach. It was so good we already plan to have it again next week. It will be one of my new "best dishes."
