spinach & artichoke enchiladas with mole sauce

this enchilada recipe is spinach & artichoke dip meets mexican mole. their flavors marry together surprisingly well, with the rich and earthy mole balancing the light goat cheese and veggie filling. it’s another super simple (and inexpensive) recipe that i developed for platejoy, and one that i am certain all will love!
