Lent Meal Ideas

Posted on the 12 February 2013 by Simplystephanieblog @StephanieKonar

Tomorrow marks the start of Lent, meaning the start of Friday menus consisting of mac & cheese, PB&J, and fish sandwiches. Yum…

I thought I would share a few recipe options to spice up the meatless mundaneness. First up, Spinach Enchiladas:


  • Spinach Enchiladas1  10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1  cup  frozen corn, thawed
  • 6  ounces  Cheddar, grated (1 1/2 cups)
  • 2  4.5-ounce cans chopped green chilies
  • 1  cup  heavy cream
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 8  6-inch corn tortillas, warmed
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. In a medium bowl, mix together the spinach, corn, 1 cup of the Cheddar, and 1 can of the chilies. In a small bowl, stir together the cream, the remaining can of chilies, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Dividing evenly, roll up the spinach mixture in the tortillas (about ⅓ cup per tortilla). Place seam-side down in a shallow baking dish. Top with the cream sauce and the remaining ½ cup of Cheddar. Cover with foil and bake until bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  3. Eat!

Happy Lent!
