Directions

Spray non-stick skillet. Put ground beef in skillet, breaking up with a spoon, and cook over medium-high heat until cooked, about 5 minutes. Stir in spices. Add onion and zucchini and cook another five minutes. Pour in both cans of diced green chilies and 1/3 cup of the enchilada sauce. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until mixture thickens or is no longer containing much liquid. Remove from heat. Stir in chopped cilantro. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray an 8.5x11 inch baking dish, and spread 1/3 cup enchilada sauce over the bottom of the dish. On a flat surface, lay out one tortilla and top with a generous spoonful of the meat mixture, topped with 1 ounce of the shredded cheese. Fold sides in and roll enchilada, then place in baking dish. When you have completed this for all ten tortillas, pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining 4 ounces of shredded cheese. Return to oven for 5 more minutes. Remove and let sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.

  • Don't be lame, TRY this! Made it and it tasted great, but didn't present mine as great at this picture. There was no mention of what the white stuff is on top but I am guessing sour cream? Made this for a bunch of hungry guy friends and they really like them. (I am trying to lose weight on Weight Watchers but I didn't tell them this and they remained clueless) My only regret was that there were no leftovers for my for the next day. These are GREAT!!!

  • I will make this over and over, it was just that good! The only thing was it was hard to find this brand of tortilla/wrap. I find Walmart seems to be the only place which carries it. We have lots in our area, so I called around to get it. I must confess the 2nd time I made it, I used another brand of tortilla wraps and of course they were just as good. People TRY these and you will be making them again and again. I have made them four times now!!!
