This is a wonderful spinach enchilada recipe. I followed the filling part exactly - only changing the store-bought red enchilada sauce to a homemade creamy white garlic sauce, as I prefer a white sauce with spinach. I simply sauted minced garlic in a small amount of butter - and added my thickener, flour in this case, to make a typical Roux, before adding half and half to the mixture until I reached the correct consitency. Used only salt and white pepper for flavor. The filling is brought together with the Ricotta - don't leave that out. It lends a smooth and rich taste to the finished product. This filling could be made in advance and assembled before cooking. Very good recipe.
Great base recipe. If you'll notice, The recipe doesn't include any spices -- in other words, a blank canvas. I swapped fat free cottage cheese for the ricotta, green enchilada sauce for the red, used about half of a large clamshell of fresh spinach instead of frozen, and used flour tortillas because I can never seem to roll corn tortillas without having them split. For the filling I added a 6oz can of diced green chiles, some leftover salsa verde, and a couple shakes of red pepper flakes, cumin, and chipotle seasoning. Without the seasonings, I think the recipe would be a little bland but it's really easy to jazz it up. Have fun with this one -- you can make it delicious!
These enchiladas are DISGUSTING. I don't know how they managed to get five stars! "If you like spinach and mexican food, you'll love these easy spinach enchiladas"... I love spinach and I love mexican food, but I do not like enchiladas stuffed so full of pure spinach that I'm gagging. If you decide to make these, add some black beans and some sauteed mushrooms and halve the spinach. Better yet, find a different recipie!
