Low-Carb Zucchini Enchiladas
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).Advertisement
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add chile powder, garlic, cumin, and sea salt; stir until combined. Add chicken and 1 cup enchilada sauce. Stir to combine and remove from heat. Let chicken mixture cool slightly.
Stir 1 cup Cheddar cheese, white parts of green onions, and 1/4 cup cilantro into the chicken mixture. Pour 1/4 cup enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 9x11-inch baking dish.
Slightly overlap 3 slices of zucchini on a cutting board. Top with a small mound of the chicken mixture. Roll up and place in the prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining zucchini slices and chicken mixture. Spoon remaining 1/4 cup sauce over zucchini enchiladas. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese and queso fresco on top.
Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 30 minutes. Garnish with green parts of green onions, sour cream, and 2 tablespoons cilantro.
To more easily slice zucchini, use a mandoline or cut in half lengthwise, lay cut side down on a cutting board, and use a Y-shaped peeler to create long slices.
Substitute cooked chicken thighs for the breasts if preferred.
