Ok, get out your maracas and sombreros, it’s time to make some finger licking good enchiladas. I can’t remember the last time I made a big dish of enchiladas, but after tonight, I think I’ll be making them more often. My husband’s comment was, “Now why can’t we have this at least once a week?!” My boys loved them too, no complaints tonight and they had no idea there was loads of healthy spinach inside. This recipe feeds at least 10 adults, so half it according to the size of your family. I know I’ll get some boo’s for the soup in the sauce, but I must say it’s quick, easy and makes a really tasty sauce! Hope you’ll all enjoy!
Fiesta Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, finely diced
1 jalapeno, minced
3 fresh cloves garlic, minced
10 oz bag baby spinach leaves, chopped
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cumin
1 10 oz can Mild Rotel diced tomatoes with Green Chilies
1 lb (Lg family size can) cream of chicken soup
1 Cup red enchilada sauce
8 oz sour cream
1/2 Cup milk
Pinch of salt
2 Cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place oil into a large skillet or dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion and jalaepeno until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add chopped spinach and cook until wilted down. Stir in chicken, salt, pepper, garlic salt, cumin and diced tomatoes. Reduce heat to low and simmer.
2. Place soup, enchilada sauce, sour cream, milk and salt into a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir until warmed though.
3. Ladle a small amount of sauce into the bottom of a large 9×13 inch baking dish (or bigger if you have one), just enough to cover the bottom. Place a spoonful of chicken mixture inside of corn tortillas, roll and place seam side down. Fill tortillas until chicken filling is used up. Top evenly with sauce and shredded cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
