Spinach Enchiladas

*EDITTED to add......a package of frozen SPINACH! HAHAHA! Ya'll probably thought I was crazy! Thanks Mary for pointing that out to me!! :-)

This is a staple in our house. It is fast, it is easy, it is YUMMY, and it is ww friendly.

1 pkg frozen spinach (I nuc mine in the microwave for about 5 min and then drain/squeeze out some of the liquid)
4 large tortillas (I use the low fat ones)
16 oz Ricotta cheese (I use either the low fat or part skim ones)
shredded mozzarella cheese
shredded cheddar cheese
onion powder
garlic salt
dried oregano

1) Preheat oven to 350.
2) Mix together the ricotta and a handful of mozzarella cheese...somewhere between 1/2c and 1c. Add in about 1tsp onion powder, 1/2tsp garlic salt and 1/4tsp pepper. Mix it all up!
3) Score the mixture into fourths. Top each tortilla with a 1/4 of your mixture and roll it up and fold the ends in.
4) Top with salsa and shredded cheddar. Hubby likes his HOT so I add jalapenos to his 2 enchiladas.
5) cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
6) Take foil off and bake for an additional 10 minutes or so until cheese is melted.

And that's it! These guys are big 2, so we serve ours with a side of black beans and each eat one enchilada and have 2 leftover for the next night! I think they come out to be about 7 pts per enchilada so not bad when you are only eating 1. Enjoy!


  1. This sounds delish, I'm adding it to my list too. . . .one question though, why are they called spinach enchiladas?? Do you use spinach tortillas or is there supposed to be spinach in the filling??
