Updated May 7, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 (9-oz.) pkg. frozen spinach, thawed, well drained
  • 1 cup small-curd cottage or ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 6 oz. (1 1/2 cups) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas, heated
  • 1 (10-oz.) can Old El Paso™ Mild Enchilada Sauce
  • Sliced green onions, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Melt margarine in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup onions; cook and stir 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add spinach; cook 1 minute or until spinach is thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in cottage cheese, sour cream and 1 cup of the cheese.
  • 2
    Spoon 1/4 cup filling down center of each tortilla; roll up. Place, seam side down, in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Pour enchilada sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 3
    Bake at 375°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with sliced green onions.

  • To drain the spinach, place it in a sieve or colander. Once it's thawed, use the back of a wooden spoon to press out the excess moisture.
  • For a crisp-textured accompaniment, serve a romaine salad with mandarin orange segments, slivered almonds and a purchased poppy seed dressing.
