Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas in White Sauce

Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas in White Sauce – the continuation of the corn tortilla saga…

If you have been following along the last few days, you would know that these enchiladas started with making corn tortillas – because we can’t do anything easy around here. 

First off, we LOVE spinach mushroom enchiladas and when you cover them in white sauce they’re even better. Trust me you’re gonna love these too!

Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas in White Sauce

Start off with 2 packages of frozen chopped spinach, 2 smallish packages of mushrooms, butter, onions, garlic, broth and cream cheese. Saute’ the onions, mushrooms, garlic in the butter. Add defrosted spinach (I didn’t even bother to squish the liquid out) stir until heated through – add cream cheese and enough broth to make the mixture creamy. Sounds easy enough right……try keeping it all in the pan. Not that I of course had ANY problems with that. :0

Now, begin making your white sauce after all you are making Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas in White Sauce. This right here is as easy peasy as you please.

In a smallish – ok medium sized sauce pan, combine lime juice, broth of your choice, garlic powder, greek yogurt (or sour cream), cilantro and a small can of green chilies.

MMMM doesn’t that look tasty! Simmer this until it starts to thicken. Add salt and pepper if you want. (We did.)

Now, the hard part of this whole fiasco – rolling the little buggers. I will admit that using homemade tortillas is easier, they seem to be more pliable than the store bought kind – go figure….

Fill your tortilla with enough of the spinach-mushroom mixture to still be able to roll it up. Place in a baking pan seam side down. Before placing enchiladas in the baking dish, put enough of your white sauce in to cover the bottom. Then just keep rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’ like a river. Ha ha I had to throw that in there.

Once you have your pan filled, cover the enchiladas with the white sauce, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, uncover and sprinkle (ok, drown) with monterey jack cheese and bake for another 15 minutes or so until cheese is melted and starting to brown.  

These Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas in White Sauce went exceptionally well with our Mexican Street Corn Salad and some Diet Coke with lime and rum. That’s just if you needed an idea for what to drink.
