1 cup diced sweet onion
3 garlic cloves ( minced )
1 Tbsp. canola oil
2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
2 (4.5 oz.) cans chopped green chiles ( drained, or an equal amount of fresh roasted green chiles )
1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup salsa verde ( mild green salsa )

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded pepper Jack cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
8 ( 8-inch soft taco-size flour tortillas )
Vegetable or Butter Cooking Spray
Tomatillo Salsa ( recipe follows )
Tomatillo Salsa
Stir together 2 cups diced tomatillo; 1/3 cup diced green onions; 1/3 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves; 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced; 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice; and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cover and chill 1 to 4 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Stir in 1 cup diced avocado just before serving. Makes 3 cups.

If you'd like to lay off the spice a little, just omit some of the green chiles and be sure to remove all seeds and membranes from the jalapeño pepper. Enjoy!
