Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 15 ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 8 ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 6 ounce bag baby spinach
  • 6 whole-wheat fajita-size tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Tossed salad, optional

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, chili powder and cumin; simmer 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Gradually stir in spinach until wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro and lightly mash bean mixture with a potato masher. Spoon about 3/4 cup of the bean mixture down center of each tortilla and tightly roll up; place seam-side down in prepared dish.

4. Sprinkle cheese over enchiladas; cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Serve warm with tossed salad, if desired.
