Seriously, if I could eat this for dinner every night, I would.
I found the original recipe for this about a year ago on SkinnyTaste.com while I was looking for some recipes that were yummy and edible on a Weight Watchers diet. The original requires making your own enchilada sauce (which I am too
lazy busy to do), and using scallions (I still don’t know what those are…unless they are green onions, which I do use), so I tweaked it a little to make it a super fast and easy recipe! Here you go…
1 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 medium zucchinis, grated
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 cups grated reduced fat mexican blend cheese
4 Large Tortillas (La Tortilla Factory makes low-carb ones)
Red Enchilada Sauce (about 10 oz.)
Chop up some green onions and cilantro to top
Spray a baking dish with cooking spray
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Grate your zucchinis
Use a pretty large non-stick skillet to saute the garlic for about 3 minutes
Add grated zucchinis and sprinkle with salt and pepper
Cook for about 5 minutes
Take off of heat and add 1/2 cup of cheese. (Or, if you’re like me, all the cheese, and then grate more later for the topping.)
Divide zucchini into 4 servings and place each on a flat tortilla roll
Roll tortilla and place seam down in baking dish
Top with as much enchilada sauce as you want, and more cheese
Bake for about 20 minutes
Top with cilantro and chopped green onions to serve
I like to use more cheese in the zucchini mixture, so I usually grate about 2 cups and split it between the inside and the topping.
This recipe is so easy, it takes NO effort to double it and freeze another batch. These things go FAST in our house, so it’s good to have extra on hand. Plus, they freeze great.
You can find the original recipe here, if you’re super fancy and know what scallions are and how to make your own enchilada sauce. 🙂 Check out the whole website – she’s got some GREAT recipes! 🙂

These look super delicious! I would love to freeze some for when my baby arrives. Would I freeze them before or after baking?
I would freeze before baking probably… But try it first. I’m not sure the zucchini would freeze well?
