  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; cook for a few minutes until fragrant, but not brown. Stir in spinach, and cook for about 5 more minutes. Remove from the heat, and mix in ricotta cheese, sour cream, and 1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, warm tortillas one at a time until flexible, about 15 seconds. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the spinach mixture onto the center of each tortilla. Roll up, and place seam side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour enchilada sauce over the top, and sprinkle with the remaining cup of Monterey Jack.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbling and cheese is lightly browned at the edges.

I really liked these, but, like another reviewer, I added seasonings to the spinach / cheese filling, like onion powder, garlic salt, cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, and pepper. This wa...

Everyone I have made these for loves them except for two of my sons who don't like even the thought of eating spinach and I have served them to a lot of people. I have never made them with ricot...

I love the enchiladas de espinaca at the local mexican restaurant and tried to copy them at home. To add color and flavor use tomatoes, add them part way through cooking the garlic and onions. ...

I printed this recipe knowing it would be good. I decided to add a little more of a mexican touch to it. Try this and you'll love them too. I took the sour cream and blended it with a roasted ca...

I thought these were just terrific. I did sub a medium sweet onion for the green and added some seasonings to the spinach/cheese mix like cumin, salt, chili powder and hot pepper flakes. Thank...

I gave this a 5 stars because the flavor was good actually, BUT too much spinach in each one. I would actually next time add 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese and 3/4 cup sour cream. They were a little ...
