1 block of frozen spinach - thawed and excess moisture squeezed out
Any other veggies you may like you can throw in (bell pepper, broccoli, zucchini)
1 cup Mexican four cheese blend - or whatever cheese (optional - delicious with or without)
1 small can diced green chilis
1-2 tsp garlic powder (to taste)
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste.
(all of these spice measurements are approximate - I don't measure, I season to until it tastes right)

Buy a can of enchilada sauce - I far prefer green for this recipe, but red will work too.
Buy a package of tortillas - taco size.

Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray - put a I buy a bag of tortillas - usually use whole wheat - and put a little of the enchilada sauce at the bottom. Then start putting the filling in the tortillas and rolling them up and placing them in the pan - repeat until the pan is full. Pour enchilada sauce over the tortilla rolls (make sure some gets down between the rolls). Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, top with more cheese if desired and put back in oven until cheese is melted (10 minutes-ish).

Hope these help you! I love to cook and eat beans!
WE made these tonight and yum! I dont know if I'll make beef ones ever again!
