Chef’s Narrative
Enchiladas are a great one-dish meal that are good the day of and even better the next. A versatile dish that can be filled with a variety of meats and vegetables, our version packs a great flavor punch with lots of spinach and a sauce of many chiles.
Recipe Substitutions
Using smoked chiles such as Chipotle add a smoky flavor to the sauce. You can also sub a canned Enchilada Sauce as a time saver. For a meat version, reduce the spinach to 1 cup and substitute cooked, shredded chicken, beef or pork.
