Meatless Mondays get a Mexican moment here, with these hearty enchiladas that will fill you up without weighing you down. Hearty sweet potatoes and healthy spinach combined with cheese and enchilada sauce give each bite a perfectly sweet-and-salty twist, with the slight heat added from the jalapeño turning these from "great" into "outstanding." You may extend meatless Monday to Tuesday or Wednesday after this meal.

  • Step 3 - Make the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add jalapeño to hot pan and stir often, 30 seconds. Add spinach and stir often until spinach is wilted, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. Stir in cooked sweet potatoes, half the cheese, half the enchilada sauce (reserve remaining for topping), and half the cilantro (reserve remaining for garnish).

  • Step 4 - Fill the Tortillas

    Fill the Tortillas

Uncover and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, 9-11 minutes. Rest baked enchiladas 5 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with remaining cilantro and sour cream.
