This Taste of Home recipe is definitely a keeper in my book.
The Husband and I loved this meal. And according to him, the leftovers were even delicious. Actually, I'm craving these as I write this post!
The spinach and mushroom mixture really is filling . The sauce is creamy and tangy. The cilantro and lime give it that brightness that is always amazing (in my book anyways).
The recipe is pretty straight forward. And though it has a few steps, they are all very easy.
A few notes:
- I did not have seasoned salt. So everytime that was called for, I just threw in a dash of garlic powder, salt, pepper, cayenne and sugar.
- The recipe gives the option of using wine or chicken broth. I used a very dry Chardonnay.
- For the 1 1/2 cups of sour cream, I used low-fat sour cream.
- I added crushed red pepper flakes to the spinach mixture and to the sour cream mixture to give the dish extra heat.
- I used a Mexican blend cheese that contained Monterey Jack instead of soley Monterey Jack, due to what I found available in stores. The benefit of using just Monterey Jack would be that it would blend into the color of the sauce.

1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
12 ounces chopped fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
