Reviews for Spinach Chicken Enchiladas
"Very tasty and a nice change from the norm. I did leave out the nutmeg."
"I think this is a terrific idea but when we made it the teaspoon of nutmeg was overpowering and we had to throw the whole thing out! Did we do something wrong???"
"My family loves these. I make it sometimes once a month. The only thing I do different is up the garlic to 2 tsp and double the sauce. My husband says they taste even better as leftovers!!!"
