Good Morning! These Enchiladas are easy to make and sooo good! I hope you had a great night and I wish for you a fabulous Tuesday.
1 pound ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups frozen cut leaf spinach
4 oz. cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes

1 can chopped green chiles
2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
1 package flour tortillas for burritos, 8 inch
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 cup salsa
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or green onion tops
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. In 12 inch skillet, cook ground beef and garlic over medium high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
Add spinach; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until spinach is thawed, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium; stir in cream cheese, cumin, chiles and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese until combined. Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture down center of each tortilla. Roll up; place seam side down in baking dish.
