  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, chili powder, and oregano. Stir until combined. Add shredded chicken, 1 cup enchilada sauce, and green chiles. Stir until well combined.

  • Slice zucchini into thin, wide sheets using a vegetable peeler or a mandoline. Lay out 3 zucchini slices, slightly overlapping, and place a spoonful of the chicken mixture on top. Roll up and transfer to a baking dish. Repeat with remaining zucchini and chicken mixture.

  • Spread remaining 1/3 cup enchilada sauce over zucchini enchiladas. Sprinkle with Cheddar-Jack cheese blend.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted, about 20 minutes. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

Cook's Note:

Use red enchilada sauce if you prefer it.

Excellent dish with great flavor. Mine turned out more like a layered casserole (lasagna) since I didn't cut my zucchini thin enough to wrap but even in casserole form I highly recommend! Read More

This is the perfect way to use up the excess supply of zucchini we get at this time of year. It very healthy delicious and hubby love it (always a good test). The only thing I would do differently when I make again is to use the zucchini as a lasagna noodle and not try to roll cause I did have some problems with that. BUT as I said great new way for me to use zucchini. Read More

This was great! It was a little tough to manage the rolling as my "thin" setting on my mandolin slicer wasn't quite thin enough. Now I'm tempted to get a vegetable sheet cutter to make these more frequently LOL! Read More

I made an enchilada lasagna instead of tolling them up and used thanksgiving turkey instead of chicken. Also found red sauce from Trader Joe s so I used that. It was super good. I will definitely make again. I made it with some cauliflower Mexican rice. Avocado and sour cream. So freaking good. Read More

I ended up using corn tortillas and adding the zucchini strips inside with the rest of the stuffing. It was very good and my teen sons loved it. Read More

Yummy! I didn't roll the zucchini; I just put a layer on the bottom and a layer on the top. I also added black olives Read More

So healthy and really easy. I threw in some extra tomato poblano and yellow pepper. Reading the other reviews I just made a layered zucchini and chicken mix and it was very easy. Tasted fantastic! Will make again. Hubby and I loved it. Read More

My husband and I loved this dish! I used all the listed ingredients plus diced poblanos and green pepper to the onion sauté. To the later additions, I added sliced black olives and a little cheese before rolling the enchiladas. I used a vegetable peeler for the zucchini, worked well, a little messy but worth it. Definitely making this again. Read More
