Ingredients

Green Enchilada Sauce

Instructions

For The Green Enchilada Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend for a minute or two until everything is very well blended. Pour sauce into a medium saucepan and bring just to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes, until sauce thickens.

For the Enchiladas

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Layer the bottom of a 9x13 pan with about 1/2 c. of the green enchilada sauce.
  • Roll each tortilla with 1/2 cup fresh spinach and 1/3 cup shredded cheese then place each one, fold side down, into the pan. Top with remaining enchilada sauce and sprinkle with more shredded cheese, to taste.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until cheese is bubbling and enchiladas are heated through. Serve topped with sour cream, sliced avocados, and diced tomatoes.
