  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

How to make Creamy Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas:

  1. Boil and shred chicken. Set aside
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin and mushrooms; saute for 5 minutes.
  3. Add spinach and salt to skillet.
  4. Stir in cream cheese. Cook until the cheese melts.
  5. Heat the salsa in a sauce pan over low heat; add the sour cream and mix well.
