  • 14-oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 onion, chopped and divided
  • 3 tsp minced canned chipotle chiles, divided
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium cottage cheese
  • 9 to 10-oz package spinach, chopped
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place tomatoes, ½ the onion, 2 teaspoons chipotle and salt in a blender. Puree until smooth.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium heat with a little olive oil. Sauté remaining onion, garlic, and mushrooms until soft. Add spinach and cook briefly until spinach wilts.
  4. Mash cottage cheese in a medium bowl; stir in spinach mixture and the remaining 1 teaspoon chipotle.
  5. Spread 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce in the prepared baking dish. Cover with 4 tortillas (they will overlap). Spread on 1/2 cup sauce, then all the spinach filling. Top with another 1/4 cup sauce. Layer on the remaining 4 tortillas and the remaining 1 cup sauce. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on top.
  6. Bake the casserole until the cheese is melted and the filling is hot, about 25 minutes. Top with a scoop of guacamole if desired.
