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!"

"I have to admit I was skeptical, but these were amazing! I like a little more spice, so we garnished with some hot pepper sauce."

"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."
