Spinach Enchiladas-


1/4 cup Olive oil
1/4 cup Chili powder (No, that's not a mis-print)
2 Red onions
4 cups Jack or Cheddar cheese grated
2 Cloves of garlic chopped
2 cups Pureed tomatoes
2 tsp. Oregano
2 tsp. Cumin
1 Huge bag Fresh Spinach (Costco size)
Salt to taste
Can of sliced olives
15 Corn tortillas
13x9 Baking dish- sprayed with pam


Heat oil- saute onions and garlic for 5-6 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except salt, cheese and spinach. Steam whole bag of spinach in a steamer or cook down on the stove in a separate pot, remove as much water from the spinach as possible and set aside. Simmer sauce covered til thickened but still has liquid. Add salt and cool to luke warm temperature. Set aside 1 cup of the cheese for later. Dip each tortilla into warm sauce and drain, then add a tablespoon or two each of cheese and spinach to each tortilla, roll and place all in baking dish as you go. Or you can put 4 tortillas at a time into microwave for 1 minute and then spoon sauce mixture, some spinach and cheese into each tortilla and roll, and then place in baking dish as you go.
Spoon remaining sauce mixture over tortillas, top with remaining 1 cup of cheese and 1 can of sliced olives. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or til done. Enjoy!

These are the best

There is no Costco where I live, so I'm unsure how big huge is on the size of the spinach bag... would two regular bags do or three, or four... or????

I'd love to try this recipe!!! Sounds hot and delicious!

I'm a lazy cook - I'm gonna try putting the spinach in the sauce without steaming it first. The heat of the sauce and then the baking time should soften up the spinach ..... :-)

Thank you
I can't remember exactly what size the Spinach bag is at Costco that I used- It was either 3 or 4lbs. It was certainly huge- I used the whole bag only because spinach cooks down in size so very much when cooking it/alot of water content to be squeezed out too. So three or four bags of spinach from the grocery store should do it
Do you have a Sam's Club near you? They may have it.

Okay, thanks Autumn for the poundage. No, we have no Sam's Club on Cape Cod either. We do have a mini BJ's Wholesale, so I'll give that a shot or just buy 4 bags at the grocery store. Thanks again!!
