  • Whisk in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 8 minutes until slightly thickened. If sauce isn’t thickening, add 1 tablespoon of flour or more as necessary.

  • Chop green onions and cilantro; drain and rinse beans.
  • Add spinach, onions, cilantro, beans, 1 cup of cheese, corn, and cumin, to a large bowl; toss to combine.
  • Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray, then add enough sauce to coat the bottom.
  • Generously fill tortillas with bean mixture, roll up tightly with ends tucked in, and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  • Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas, coating evenly; top with remaining cheese.
  • Cover with foil and bake about 20 minutes, taking off the foil in the last few minutes of cooking.
  • Garnish with additional cilantro and/or green onions if desired.
  • Serve with apple slices on the side.
