DIRECTIONS

  • For enchiladas, cook the spinach according to the package directions, if using frozen.
  • While spinach is cooking, combine garlic, onion and mushrooms in food processor, and process until coarsely chopped.
  • Melt butter in sauté pan, and sauté onion mixture until onion is translucent.
  • Remove pan from heat, and set aside.
  • Drain spinach, squeezing out excess water.
  • Make bread crumbs in food processor from sliced bread.
  • Add spinach, salt, pepper, nutmeg, chili powder and eggs.
  • Process until blended thoroughly.
  • Transfer to mixing bowl, and stir in onion mixture and 6 tablespoons cheese.
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Spoon a portion of filling onto each tortilla and roll it up.
  • Place each enchilada in casserole dish, seam side down.
  • Repeat until you've used up filling.
  • For cream sauce, mix half-and-half, cayenne, salt and a little of the dissolved corn starch in medium saucepan, and heat until thickened.
  • The sauce should be creamy, not runny; add more cornstarch mixture as necessary.
  • Off the heat, stir in cilantro.
  • Pour Cilantro Cream Sauce over tortillas, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Broil until cheese melts and turns a nice golden color.
