Enchiladas are one of my husband’s top requested recipes but usually our recipes include chicken or another type of meat. For this Meatless Monday I wanted to create a version of my enchiladas that were filled with sauteed hearty veggies with big flavors and made you forget that it’s meat free! I think I hit the jackpot with these Mushroom Spinach Enchiladas! Give them a try this Meatless Monday and I bet you’ll forget you’re eating vegetarian!
