"Very Good! I used medium salsa - perfect!"

"This is a good meatless dish....but the one package of spinach will not fill 6 tortillas. I cook rice and add it to the tortilla first...and then layer everything else. You could also add some chopped black olives to the tortillas. You will probably want more picanta sauce...or salsa to serve with the tortillas."

"We loved this recipe. Simple and delicious. I added fresh jalapeno to the onions and garlic and served it with a dollop of sour cream. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe."

"I used green enchilada sauce rather than the picante sauce for a milder taste. Delicious!!!"
