Cheesy Rice and Spinach Enchiladas

Pat Duran


I know this seams like a lot of ingredients- but these are leftovers from other meals we had during the week. I like to try and use up everything. You can use your own leftover combinations to make your own enchiladas. Like beans, cheese, rice, tomatoes,pork, etc....

This was even better the next day!
