Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 F. Mash black beans with fork or in food processor. Fold cilantro, tomatoes and jalapeno into beans. Season with salt and pepper. Saute garlic in oil. Remove from heat, add spinach and cover. Cook 6 minutes, stirring occasionally to wilt spinach evenly. Arrange black bean mixture, spinach and 1 c. cheese on the center of tortillas. Fold tortilla and place, seam side down, on rimmed baking sheet. Cover with salsa and remaining cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and filling is hot and bubbly. Serve with sour cream and additional salsa, if desired.

Personal Notes:
I first made this dish to take to a small potluck dinner. In an effort to please both my meat-hungry husband and the vegetarian host of the dinner, I added some shredded chicken to half of the enchiladas with wonderful results.
