"This is one of my favorites because it is easy, fast and simple and versatile. If you like brown rice, I recommend using it in this and all recipes. It takes a bit longer to cook but is worth the wait, for both nutrition and taste. There is an instant brown rice on the market now, too."

I make no claims to authentic enchiladas here, this is just my method! But, they're a great "clean out the fridge" food that's pretty enough for company to boot! You can sub beans for the meat, or do a mixture, add any veggies you like (corn and bell peppers, oh yeah!...even cooked cubed potatoes/yams or winter squash). Try it with kale or chard instead of spinach, basically use your imagination!

Picadillo is a traditional beef taco filling that makes a terrific complement to potatoes, beans, and/or rice. Think of it as a cute little burrito.
We've simplified the recipe to create a healthy E2 version.

Low-Fat Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas With Creamy Green Chile Sauce
Very Good 4.3/5
(35 ratings)

My favorite dish at a local Mexican restaurant is their Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce. I had to try and find a way to lower the fat and sodium so I could enjoy these without the guilt! I tweaked that recipe a bit to lower the sodium and fat, and came up with a winner! My husband and teen daughter gobble these up!

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.
