For the Enchilada Filling:

  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Enchilada Sauce:
    • 2 cups tomato sauce
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    For Assembling:

    • 8-10 small corn tortillas
    • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


    1. Prepare the Enchilada Filling:

    • In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped spinach, ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined. Set aside.

    2. Make the Enchilada Sauce:

    • In a saucepan, combine the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Heat over medium heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

    3. Preheat the Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

    4. Assemble the Enchiladas:

    • Warm the corn tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds to make them pliable.
    • Take a tortilla, spoon a generous amount of the spinach and cheese filling onto it, and roll it up tightly. Place it seam-side down in a baking dish.
    • Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas and filling.

    5. Pour the Enchilada Sauce:

    • Pour the prepared enchilada sauce evenly over the rolled enchiladas.

    6. Add Cheese and Bake:

    • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the enchiladas.
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the enchiladas are heated through.

    7. Garnish and Serve:

    • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and slightly golden.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
    • Serve the Spinach and Cheese Enchiladas hot, and enjoy!
