    1      Bunch         cilantro chopped
                         Or chopped chives
 1. Make the stuffing. Put the cottage cheese and cream cheese in food
 processor and blend till smooth.
 Add the other ingredients and stir into cheese mixture. 2. Red sauce: This
 is my way of doing this.
 you can use any red chili sauce recipe  here. Wash chilies and remove seeds
 unless you want this REALLY
 Boil water in saucepan. Add chilies and turn off heat and let soak. Melt
 butter in frying pan. Add
 onions and garlic and saute until clear. Set aside.
 Put chilies and water in food processor and blend until smooth. Add flour
 to butter mix and make a roux.
 Add chili with liquid and make a sauce. You may have to add water or a
 small can of tomato sauce. I don't
 use the tomato sauce. Simmer until thickened stirring constantly. Set
 aside. 3.  Simmer tomatillos in water
 until tender. Add to food processor and blend until smooth. Saute onion and
 garlic in a bit of oil or butter in frying pan and add to tomatillos 4. Dip
 tortillas in the red sauce while it is simmering to soften them. Fill with
 a dollop of the cheese and spinach mixture and roll and put in glass
 casserole sprayed with pan spray, seam side down. 5. Cover with
 red sauce. 6. Add Tomatillo sauce 7. Dollops of sour cream can be put on
 top of this. This makes a red green and white casserole to compliment the
 Mexican flag. I like to garnish with chopped fresh cilantro.
 Serves 8.
