“Did half fat free sour cream and half heavy cream for the sauce. We could probably go lower fat still and maintain great taste. Also, if you warm the tortillas briefly on a fry pan, they become more pliable and less likely to break. Cabbage salad was a good side for it too.”
8 tortillas

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400* F. In a medium bowl, mix together the spinach, corn, 1 cup of the Cheddar, and 1 can of the chilies. In a small bowl, stir together the cream, the remaining can of chilies, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Dividing evenly, roll up the spinach mixture in the tortillas (about 1/3 cup per tortilla). Place seam-side down in a shallow baking dish. Top with the cream sauce and the remaining 1/2 cup of Cheddar. Cover with foil and bake until bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the cabbage and scallions with the pepitas, oil, lime juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the enchiladas.
  4. Tip"s: The enchiladas can be assembled (but not baked) up to 12 hours in advance; refrigerate, covered. Increase the covered cooking time by 5 to 10 minutes.
