Veggie and G/F Enchiladas

Vegetarian and Gluten Free EnchaladasThese enchiladas are bursting with zucchini, a bit of peppers and rounded out with some cheese and spices. I’ve made them light – and shared an easy homemade enchilada sauce because finding a gluten free sauce isn’t always easy to find at the store. These are great for a warm summer’s night when you have friends and family over, and can be topped off with fresh salsa, guacamole, or sour cream.

For the sauce:
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup low sodium vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
salt and pepper, to taste

For the enchiladas:
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 white onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 large zucchinis, grated
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup yellow corn
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium scallions, diced
6 large gluten free tortillas
1 1/2 cups Mexican cheese blend

Add the zucchini, peppers, and corn and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove any excess water from the pan and stir in 1/2 cup of cheese into the vegetables and allow it to melt.


In a 9×13 baking dish, cover the bottom with just a bit of the enchilada sauce. Scoop the vegetable mix into the tortillas, evenly dividing among the tortillas and fold them seam side down into the baking dish. Top off with the rest of the enchilada sauce, then sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and scallions and bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot with toppings of choice. Enjoy!

*For premade enchilada sauce, use 22 oz can.
