    These were delicious! I love the gravy sauce! Husband and daughter loved them as well and asked me to make them again soon! The only change I would make is to chop up the spinach so it's harder for the little one to pick out, lol. Loved this and thanks!

    This is my kind of Chicken Enchiladas, the spinach and herbs you have selected go well together, love the addition of the green chili peppers and cheese too.
