We loved Fresh Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas. A veggie version of a family favorite! Well, Brookie and I did. Not too sure about the boys. They’re always looking for the meat. I added onions and fresh mushrooms to the dish to beef up the filing and give it a bit more flavor and interest. The boys like flour over corn tortillas, so I gave in and used flour this time. These kind of reminded me of lasagna because of the ricotta filling. Total prep and cook time- about 40 minutes. Serve it with a salad, chips and Sheri’s Salsa. Great for busy fall nights.
