    It was great! I would just add to warm the corn tortillas so that they roll better and don't break. - 1/21/09

    Soooo good! My boyfriend and I loved these! I sauteed the onions briefly first and added a can of black beans (drained, rinsed), green chiles, and 1 tsp each of cumin and chili powder to the filling. Definitely making this again! I'm curious how these would be with flour tortillas... - 7/17/09

    I threw in some black beans and replaced some of the cheese with NF cream cheese. Very yum. The only change I'd make is either cutting down to half an onion, or else caramelizing at least half of the onions. The taste was pretty overpowering. - 1/12/09

    AWESOME recipe. I too added black beans and tomato and used ff cream cheese for half the cheese. Then chilli powder and cumin. But my two boys loved them. They said I could have evn made them a little more spicy. So next time I think I will add some chilli's. I had no leftovers, 2 thumbs up!!!

    We enjoyed this recipe. I used 8 oz. of fat free cream cheese for 1/2 the grated cheese inside. This would be good with some, mushrooms, shredded chicken and taco seasoning or cumin. Any suggestions on other veggies to add? - 11/15/08

    LOVED THIS ONE! The only thing I would recommend is to note what size of package of frozen raw spinich. I got a large one and it made way to much stuffing for the tortillas. - 3/12/08

  • These were great! It was a nice lunch the next day too. I would agree that warming up the tortillas to help roll better and adding black beans just for fun! - 1/6/12

  • YUM!

    I also cut down on the onion, and added some spices. I used pinto beans as a side one night, and black beans another night.

    This recipe is VERY filling. You don't feel deprived at all! - 7/3/11

  • This was a great recipe. It was easy to make and tasted wonderful. I actually added a pepper to it to make it have a bite to it. Very good. Will make again and would recommend this to friends. - 1/22/11

  • I followed other people's advice and added black beans, green chilies and some left over Christmas turkey. I also did about 2x the cilantro and sauted the onions. I got good reviews from my mom and dad. Will definitely make again! - 1/1/11

  • I added the black beans as well, and used corn tortillas and I loved it. I didn't quite have enough enchilada sauce to make all the enchiladas I had, so I used Cholula on the 3 in the 2nd batch I made, and my spouse loved it. - 9/25/10

  • These are SO GOOD! I agree with other commenters that there is just a little too much onions. And heating the tortillas before helps. I also added black beans and used 2% cheese and they are SO FILLING! - 8/10/10

  • best enchiladas I have ever had. I used wheat tortillas from Trader Joe's and the Trader Joe's enchilada sauce. So yummy! I also only used 1/2 an onion. Both my children loved this meal too. I will for sure be making this again! - 1/6/10

  • Delicious! I made these for dinner the other night and there are no left overs - and this was a tough audience of enchilada fans. The only complaint was they needed more cheese, but that they were awesome nonetheless! I did add in some black beans and some famous Hatch green chili. Excellent! - 1/7/09

  • I agree with chpperchic - note what sizes to be used. Also, would recommend you warm the tortillas before tryig to roll or they will crumble! When my girlfriends and I made this we added ground chicken with taco seasoning. It was awesome! - 4/5/08

  • I made this tonight for dinner and it was good. When I make it again I might add a few more veggies and a little less spinach (but still have the spinach as the main veggie). The chopped cilantro added a lot of taste in the dish. We added light sour cream on top to make it not as spicy for the kids. - 4/1/08

  • I made this on a work night. It was fast and easy. I don't think I needed to cook it for 35 minutes but it was still yummy. It would also be good if you add some ground turkey or something. I added some leftover chicken to some of mine. I would recommend. Thanks for the recipe. - 3/13/08
