I borrowed this enchilada recipe from my friend Megan after she raved about how great they were… And man was she right. This recipe is a great change to the typical chicken with queso enchiladas. The spinach sauce is what sets this recipe apart, so fresh and delicious. Omit the chicken and you have a perfect meatless meal and I promise you won’t miss it. …

Do I make a lot of pasta? It sure seems like it. Note to self, stop eating so many carbs! At least this one I tried to make a little healthier by adding spinach, right? Right.
