How to Make Zucchini Enchiladas

Want to make tasty, healthy Zucchini Enchilada Roll Ups? Follow the simple steps below to get started! They’re gluten free and a great quick and easy weeknight meal that’s healthy and satisfying. Best of all, you can customize them with your favorite toppings to make them just how you like them. You won’t be disappointed!

To make these low carb zucchini enchiladas, get started by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Slice your zucchinis lengthwise to create thin slices. Once you have done this, place the sliced zucchinis onto a baking sheet.

Spray the tops of the zucchini with some nonstick cooking spray. Then, pop them in the oven and let them cook for about 15 minutes. The zucchini should be tender and slightly browned.

While your zucchini slices are baking, you can prepare the delicious beef filling in a large pan over medium-heat. Simply cook some ground beef until it is fully cooked. Then stir in corn, black beans and a half-cup of enchilada sauce.

Once your zucchini slices are ready and beef filling is prepared, it’s time to finally assemble your Zucchini Enchilada Roll Ups!

Start by placing a few slices of zucchini lengthwise on a flat surface, making sure to overlap them slightly. Then, spoon in a few tablespoons of beef filling onto the zucchini. Roll up the zucchini to create a neat cylinder shape. Repeat this process with all of your remaining sliced zucchini.

Pour some more enchilada sauce into the bottom of a large baking dish. Then transfer the Zucchini Enchilada Roll Ups into the dish. Pour more enchilada sauce over the top of the zucchini roll ups and sprinkle some cheese on top. Pop them back into the oven for another 15 minutes until they are warm and the cheese is melted.

When they’re done cooking, garnish your zucchini enchiladas with sliced avocado pieces and chopped cilantro for a bright finishing touch. Enjoy these low carb enchiladas as a tasty appetizer or a satisfying main course. Either way, they’re sure to wow your taste buds!
