I came across this recipe on Pinterest (I know, surprise, right?!). What I liked about this recipe is that it had some added veggies and looked like a good freezable meal. Knowing my hubby's taste buds, I added a few changes.

Black Bean and Spinach Enchiladas
Adapted from Martha Stewart
Enchilada Sauce (I cheated and used a bottle from Trader Joe's)
1/2 a small can of salsa verde
15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups corn (I used canned)
Oven roasted Chicken Breasts, chopped (about a pound)
6 oz. fresh baby spinach
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
3 tbs. minced garlic
2 tsp. cumin
3 cups shredded 3 cheese blend (or pepper jack, etc.)
8 whole wheat or flour tortillas
***The original recipe called for making your own enchilada sauce, which I intended to do but ran out of time. Vegetable Broth was for the enchilada sauce which I didn't make.
Saute the spinach and garlic in olive oil over medium heat for 1-2 minutes until slightly wilted.
In a large bowl, combine chopped chicken, beans, 2 cups cheese, spinach, corn, green onions, 2 tsp. cumin, and cilantro.
Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spray a 9x13 inch baking dish, and pour a small amount of the sauce to coat the bottom. Generously fill tortillas with mixture, roll up tightly with ends tucked in, and place seam side down in dish.
Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas, coating evenly. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese on top.
Bake about 20 minutes, and garnish with cilantro and/or green onions (optional).
