When I got home from vacation my neighbor had picked 10 large zucchini from my garden. I had to use it up so I found this recipe in my apply named cookbook "Too many Tomatoes, Squash, Beans and other good things....a cookbook for when your garden explodes...by Landau and Myers". Really good casserole and I bet it can be frozen (although I haven't had to do it yet).

Directions

  1. Fry each tortilla 2 minutes in hot oil, until heated through but still pliable. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Saute beef and onion in oil. Drain off grease.
  3. Add zucchini and saute 5 minutes more. Spoon the sauce into the 12 tortillas.
  4. Sprinkle the Monterey Jack cheese on top of the sauce and then roll the tortillas up and place in a shallow baking dish.
  5. Pour enchilada sauce over tortillas.
  6. Sprinkle with extra Monterey Jack cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Really enjoyed these!!! I admit that I made mine vegetarian and subbed out button mushrooms for the ground beef, but they were great! I made Texas Red Enchilada Sauce to go on this recipe (which was so yummy). I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow!!! I did prep these a day early and put them in the fridge. . .then today I just cooked them covered on 350 for about 45 minutes to perfection. Thanks for posting!!! Made for Photo Tag. This is a real keeper of a recipe.

Really yummy! I didn't fry the tortillas but sprayed with Pam and microwaved for 30 seconds to make them pliable for rolling. Very good with the zucc! I also added about 1 C chopped mushrooms since I needed to use them up. I never thought about adding zucc to the enchiladas. This is a good way to get the kids to eat green veggies. Thanks again, Mary! This is a true keeper! P

Made for 1-2-3 HIt Wonders. This was very good and different from the enchiladas that I usually make (from leftover taco meat and refried beans). What a great way to get extra veggies in. I made it using 15 Minute Enchilada Sauce for the sauce and also made it lasagna style. We had enough for two meals! Thanks for posting this Mary!
