Nutrition Packed Veggie Enchiladas
  1. 1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes
  2. 1 small onion, chopped
  3. 3 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chiles (see Tip), divided
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 1/2 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium cottage cheese
  6. 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  7. 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  8. 1 bunch scallions, sliced, white and green parts separated
  9. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  10. 8 6-inch corn tortillas
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place tomatoes, onion, 2 teaspoons chipotle and salt in a blender. Puree until smooth. Mash cottage cheese in a medium bowl; stir in spinach, 1/2 cup cheese, scallion whites, garlic powder and the remaining 1 teaspoon chipotle.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce in the prepared baking dish. Cover with 4 tortillas (they will overlap). Spread on 1/2 cup sauce, then all the spinach filling. Top with another 1/4 cup sauce. Layer on the remaining 4 tortillas and the remaining 1 cup sauce. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese on top.
  4. Bake the casserole until the cheese is melted and the filling is hot, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the reserved scallion greens.
  1. Tip: Chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful, spicy sauce. Look for the small cans with Mexican foods at large supermarkets. Once opened, they’ll keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.
