Ingredients
  

  • 2 Cups Shredded Chicken
  • 4 Cups Fresh Spinach
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 16 oz. Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1 4 oz. Can Diced Green Chiles Drained
  • 2 Thinly Sliced Green Onions
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
  • 8-9 Taco Sized Flour Tortillas
  • Diced Cilantro and Green Onion For Garnish, Optional

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and add the sliced garlic. Cook until fragrant, then remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and discard. Add the spinach to the oil with a pinch of salt and cook until just wilted. Remove the spinach to a strainer and allow to drain.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the sour cream, milk, green onions, green chiles, a handful of shredded cheese, and the cumin and salt.
  • In a separate, larger bowl, combine the chicken, drained spinach, and about half of the sauce.
  • Spray the bottom of a 9x13 glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, and spread about a tablespoon of the sauce mixure in the bottom.
  • Fill each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture, and place in the glass baking dish seam side down.
  • Spread the sauce over the top of the rolled tortillas, then top that with the rest of the shredded cheese.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with sliced green onion and cilantro to serve if desired.
