These vegetarian enchiladas are easy to make, delicious, and very filling. They are also very accommodating to modifications. I frequently use zucchini or add mushrooms and other vegetables.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic until slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add summer squash; cook and stir until almost tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in half of the green chile peppers, 1 teaspoon chili powder, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in remaining 1 teaspoon chili powder, flour, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook for 1 minute. Pour in milk and stir until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese; add remaining green chile peppers.

  • Stir 1/2 cup sauce into the squash mixture. Spoon 1/3 cup of the squash and sauce mixture into the center of each tortilla; roll up.

  • Arrange filled tortillas in the baking dish. Cover with remaining sauce. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 25 minutes. Top with remaining 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese and tomatoes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute margarine for butter if desired.
