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!

Very Good 4.3/5

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.
