Just curious, the sodium for the enchilada seems really high for a serving - 1270 mg!? I could come up with about 700mg per serving, using the bottle of salsa verde I used and the 1/2 teaspoon of salt called for in the recipe.

But beyond that - this is really a fantastic treat. We look forward to a couple more days of this nutritional cornucopia. Brava to you for sharing.


I was surprised by the sodium content of the enchiladas as well; I don't see ANY added salt or source of the sodium besides the salsa and maybe the tortillas? Please help on this one as I'm trying to watch sodium intake.

@Jules & Terry: Thanks for your questions. I looked through the nutritional content of the ingredients I used & by far, most of the sodium came from the SALSA VERDE!!! This would be an easy fix--just look for a low-sodium version. But, a warning, the recipe uses a lot of salsa verde & most nutritional info on labels is based on just 2 tablespoons of salsa. In this recipe, each serving has about 1/4 cup of salsa verde--so multiply the sodium on the label by 4 to know how much sodium will be in each serving of the enchiladas. Hope that makes sense. Also, buy no salt black beans--or rinse them well, that removes a lot of the salt. Don't add any salt to the recipe! You can make this work for you!

The enchilada casserole was definitely a hit in our house. I was a little concerned that my hubby (who's not a fan of green salsa, and is a confirmed carnivore) would not care for it, but he ate it up & asked for seconds! Definitely going into the regular rotation.

Regarding the sodium calculations - if you are using 1/4 c. per serving that is four Tablespoons so you would multiply the sodium on the label (for two T.) by two, not four, I think.
