Spinach Enchiladas



Alrighty then....we are going to leave the sweets behind for a little bit (maybe a minute or two).
What's for dinner? You have got to try this recipe. Here is the story behind my wonderful mishap:
I went to the grocery store with list in hand. I bought all my supplies (ingredients), but when I got home I realized I bought feta cheese instead of ricotta. OOPS!! Well, I was bound and determined to make this for dinner. I was looking through my refrigerator and noticed a partial container of ranch chip-dip. "HMMMM"...my mind is saying. Chip-dip has sour cream in it. So I created a masterpiece!!
When I completed the filling part of the enchiladas (with help from my daughter), and tasted it of course, we had to break out a bag of tortilla chips. The filling tasted exactly like warm spinach dip. Am I making your mouth water yet? I am not going to make you suffer any longer. Here is the recipe my way:

Spinach Enchiladas

1 TBS olive oil
1/2 c. sliced green onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed dry
1 c. feta cheese
1/2 c. ranch chip-dip
2 c. pepper jack cheese
10 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1 can (19 oz.) enchilada sauce (I used Carlita)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Heat olive oil in a sauce pan or deep skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onion, cook for a few minutes until fragrant, not brown. Stir in spinach, and cook for about 5 more minutes. Remove from the heat, and mix in feta, chip-dip, and 1 c. of pepper jack cheese.
In a skillet over medium heat, warm tortillas one at a time until flexible, about 15 seconds. Spoon about 1/4 c. of the spinach mixture onto the center of each tortilla. Roll up, and place seam side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour enchilada sauce over the top, and sprinkle with the remaining cup of pepper jack cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbling and cheese is lightly browned at the edges of the pan.

Good luck~Happy eating~Enjoy!!!!
