Day 79- Zumba=Mexican Food

Happy Tuesday!

I simply love Tuesday! Why do i love Tuesday? Because for me it’s Zum-Day, translation: ZUMBA DAY at Fit World.

Bernie pulled out some new routines for class today. I was sweating by the second routine and soaked by the time class was over. We also ended class with an intense upper body session using the body bar, followed by an abdominal segment. I am D-Y-I-N-G from the classes this week…..I LOVE it. Come shake it with me next week!

So let’s talk about weekly weigh in’s. Personally I am at yet another plateau in my journey. It’s so tough when you’re standing at the edge of something you really want to see, or a number you really want to see. The stress doesn’t help, not to mention stress is weight loss’ worst enemy. It builds nasty Cortisol and as women, Cortisol is a tough beast for us to battle. So while I may be at a stand still, and standing at the edge of that plateau I have to remind myself that it’s OK. I will over come, I will get past it and my body will get back on board. I can’t give up I still have pounds left to shed and I will!!!

So after Zumba class I was totally in the mood for Mexican food! Must be all of that Latin shaking ;). I typically make the hubby’s fave Bison Tacos but I had a nice 3lb package of chicken cutlets that needed to be cooked up. So I decided to make a new kind of Enchilada, thus the GGH Chicken Spinach Verde Enchilada was born!

The recipe is below, enjoy!

Girl Gone Healthy’s Chicken Spinach Verde Enchiladas:



– 1 package Fat Free tortillas

– 10 to 15 Chicken Cutlets

– 1 can Verde (green) Enchilada sauce

– Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy seasoning

– 2% Skim Cheese Mexican flavor

– 1 1/2 cups Fresh Baby Spinach-NOT FROZEN

– I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter

– Cooking Spray


Place cutlets in casserole dish coated with cooking spray, spray cutlets with ICBINB and sprinkle Mrs.Dash over everything. Allow cutlets to bake in pre-heated 375 oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Allow cutlets to cool.

Once cooled, place in large bowl and toss cutlets with  half can of Verde sauce. Make sure all cutlets are well coated. Next, begin assembling enchiladas.

Taking one tortilla-lay flat on work station, place 2 to 3 coated cutlets on tortilla; sprinkle cheese on top of chicken; place spinach a top chicken and cheese. Lastly roll tortilla up and place in new/clean casserole dish. Continue this method of assembly until all tortillas or chicken is used. Top enchiladas with remaining Verde sauce and sprinkle with additional cheese.

Place enchilada filled casserole dish in pre-heated 350 oven and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Very tasty!
