Wednesday 6/24/09 - Spinach, mushroom (and chicken) enchiladas

After searching for mexican the other day and being met by a dirty bodega, I was craving it. I decided on this vegetarian recipe but ended up adding a bit of chicken (except for my veggie friend). I took this from the site and as usual it was delicious - I always enjoy their recipes.
