Enjoy the flavors of green chiles and the texture of shredded chicken in these Enchiladas Suiza. Melted cheese and sauteed spinach and onion only add to the unique taste. And if that weren't enough, these enchiladas are a snap to make, but they taste like you've spent hours in the kitchen. "Suiza" is "Switzerland" in Spanish, named for the creamy white sauce that tops them.
12 medium corn tortillas
2 cups shredded chicken
6 ounces roasted green chiles, peeled and coarsely chopped
3 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 cup crema, or sour cream
