The Dish: Spinach & Cheese Enchiladas

Like most families were on a budget all while trying to be more aware of what we eat. Which for my family means: no eating out (maybe once or twice a month) and cooking yummy lighter meals. I'm by no means a foodie or an awesome cook, but I'm good at finding yummy recipes to make for friends and family. So I decided to start a new weekly feature on my blog about yummy healthy cheap recipes we made during the week. I'll share everything from yummy dinners to tasty deserts.

One of my favorite yummy recipes I recently started making for dinner is Cheese & Spinach Enchiladas. The ingredients combine the fresh with the fast. 
Spinach & Cheese Enchiladas

8 Corn tortillas { I prefer using La Tortilla Factory the tortillas are thick healthy & yummy }
1/2 cup of Reduced fat Mexican Blend Cheese
1/4 cup Reduced fat cream cheese soften
1 can of Rosita Red or Green Enchilada Sauce
2 cups of fresh spinach
1/2 cup of black olives  
These are the best tortillas ever! Check our more information about La Tortilla Factory { here }. I use them all the time when making tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas. 

Heat the oven to 425 degrees

Pour half of your enchilada sauce in the bottom on your baking dish. Then on a separate plate pour your sauce and dip each tortilla in the dish and cover with sauce. Next smear a little cream cheese on the tortilla. Place spinach and cheese inside and roll up, then pace in the dish { seam side down} Repeat. Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle cheese, olives and cilantro on top.

They already look yummy prior to baking!
Cover your baking dish with tin foil and cook for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

For sides I usually serve with black beans. Drain your black beans and heat on stove top and garnish with cilantro & feta cheese.

Serve & Enjoy! 

I also like making like using green enchiladas sauce with this recipe. This is one of my favorite easy and yummy healthy recipes I enjoy making. What's yours?
