Spinach and Bean Enchilada

I know I just commented on how I didn’t pick an enchilada recipe for SRC because I already have three recipes but I have to add another.  There is a Mexican restaurant near us that serves these amazing Spinach & Cheese enchiladas and I had to try recreating them.  I switched out the cheese for beans since I’m on a low-cheese diet and greatly increased the amount of spinach.  I also made the sauce from scratch, deviating from the original entree again by preparing a red sauce instead of the sour cream verde sauce normally served on them.  The end result is a delicious spicy sauce that goes perfectly with the beans and spinach, probably because they got their fair share of spices before being stuffed in the tortilla shells.

and the enchiladas themselves:

The next step will be making my own tortillas, but I’m still more than a little nervous about that.  It took long enough for me to conquer bread in my bread machine, but eventually I’ll have to do it!
