Almost since I’ve been old enough to talk, I requested one of my favorite foods when all I could say was “la-las!
These enchiladas are pretty much a staple in our house. One of the reasons is because they are great heated up as leftovers.
What Makes Enchiladas Even MORE Awesome?
Spinach! In my opinion, adding spinach is one of the best things you can do to breathe new life into plain old cheese enchiladas. Don’t get me wrong…cheese enchiladas are great in their own right, but adding fresh spinach really kicks up the flavor and substance!
Great Spinach Enchiladas Start with a Great Tortilla!
- Yeast Free
- High in Fiber
- Contain Sprouted Grains (which generally makes the amount of nutrients higher in foods and are easier to digest)
Getting Saucy with It!
Another ingredient that can make or break your spinach enchiladas is the sauce.
We typically buy our enchilada sauce off the shelf. The brand we use for this particular recipe is Hatch Organic Red Enchilada Sauce. Super yummy!
Adding even a little bit of spinach to this dish gives a healthy dose of Vitamins A and K as well as manganese and folate, among other key nutrients.
You can make this spinach enchiladas recipe with mild or spicy sauce (prepared or homemade), add chopped onions if you like, and top with sour cream, more onions, salsa, jalapenos, or cilantro.

Looking to Make Your Spinach Enchiladas Vegan?
If you’re looking to make your spinach enchiladas, you’re in luck because there are some great veggie cheese options out there these days. One of our favorites (and a favorite of our community) is Daiya Dairy-free cheese. You can also skip the cheese altogether if you’d prefer.
We focus on people's favorite ways to enjoy cheese with our delicious dairy-free cheese alternatives. We've created Shreds, Wedges, Slices, Cream Cheese Style Spreads, and Pizzas. All Daiya products are free of three of the most common allergens: dairy (casein, whey, and lactose), soy, and gluten. But what they do contain is creaminess, flavor and savory goodness.
