I love summer squash and this is a different way to prepare them. You may a combination of summer squash and zucchini if you like.

Great stuff! Made exactly as listed and the enchiladas were awesome. I used corn tortillas so had a little trouble rolling them up without cracking, but in the end it worked out fine and was delicious!
