Cheesy vegetarian enchiladas filled with mushrooms, fresh spinach and salsa verde.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 (8-ounce) packages baby bella mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 1 (3-ounce) package shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
5 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves
2 cups shredded mild white cheddar cheese, divided
10 large flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups jarred salsa verde
Chopped cilantro, for garnish
Diced avocado, for garnish
Pepita seeds, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400oF. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with olive oil spray and set aside.

  2. Add the olive oil to a large skillet set over medium heat. When hot, add the onion and cook

    until it starts to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in all the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and the mushrooms have released most of their juices, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Add in the spinach, a few handfuls at a time, and cook until wilted.

  3. Increase the heat slightly and continue to cook until the liquid released from the mushrooms has evaporated, about 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese. Mix until well combined, then taste and season with additional salt and pepper as needed.

  4. Heat the tortillas for about 45 seconds in the microwave so that they are pliable.

  5. Scoop 1/3 cup of the filling and place in a line down the center of a tortilla. Roll the tortilla up

    tightly and transfer to the prepared baking dish with the seam-side down. Repeat with the

    remaining tortillas and filling.

  6. Evenly pour the salsa verde over the top of the enchiladas, then sprinkle with the remaining

    cheese. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and then return to the oven to bake for 5 to 7 additional minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Garnish as desired.
