How to make it
- In large heavy skillet(I used cast iron), cook meat with onion and garlic over medium heat, until meat is done, but not over brown.
- Add torn spinach and stir and heat for just a couple minutes, until it's all starting to wilt.
- Drain well.
- Add mixture back to skillet and add the crema, 1-3 chipotles(I used all that are in the can) and all the adobo sauce, salt, pepper and half the shredded cheese.
- Mix well(no need to reheat, just mix it up well)
- Fill and roll tortillas enchilada or burrito style and place them seam side down in a lightly greased casserole dish. (I used a large cast iron pan, instead :)
- Pour the salsa verde over the enchiladas and add the rest of the shredded cheese.
- Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted.
- Serve with fresh cilantro, more sour cream or crema, and olives.
