Spinach 'n' Broccoli Enchiladas Recipe

I like to top this wonderful meatless meal with lettuce and serve it with extra picante sauce. It's quick, easy, filled with fresh flavor and definitely satisfying! Lesley Tragesser - Charleston, Missouri

"I was skeptical about this recipe, too. But I had loads of extra spinach and broccoli and no way to use them, so I tried it. My husband and I loved it! We don't eat any meatless meals, really, so this was a lovely surprise. Great way to eat our veggies and save our meat!"

"My family loved this recipe. Even my 3 yr old had some. What a great way to get spinach and broccoli into a toddler. We used whole wheat tortillia insted of the flour ones."

"Excellent! We added pepperjack on top for a little extra flavor and chicken in the mix as well. We seasoned the chicken with a little bit of cajun and creole seasoning. We like our food spicy, so if you do too this is a good way to make it! We loved this!"

"My friend recommended this recipe to me, but I have to say that it is one of the worst things I've ever made (and I love this magazine and make lots of meals from it). The broccoli and cottage cheese just do not belong with the Mexican flavors."
