Recipe Tip:

You can thaw your spinach under running water if you throw it into a small mesh strainer. I generally use a paper towel or the bottom of a measuring cup to press the spinach into the strainer after it's thawed... an easy way to squeeze all the excess moisture out before adding it to your enchiladas.
