Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini diced (can also use frozen)
  • 1 cup corn fresh or frozen
  • 1 large red pepper diced (can also use frozen)
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups salsa verde homemade or store bought, separated
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese separated
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas

Instructions

  • Cut up vegetables (if using fresh ones) and place in steamer. Steam for about 4 minutes, or until soft. After steaming, press your veggies with clean paper towels to drain out some of the water. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • Place in large mixing bowl along with black beans. Toss vegetables and beans with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and ¼ cup of salsa verde. Stir in ¼ cup of cheese and set aside.
  • Spread about ½ cup of salsa verde over bottom of a 9×13” baking pan. Evenly distribute filling between the 8 tortillas. Roll up the tortillas and place seam-side down in baking pan.
  • Pour remaining salsa verde over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
  • Place lid or heavy-duty foil over baking sheet and store in freezer for up to three months. When ready to eat, defrost enchilada in refrigerator overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375F. Bake defrosted enchiladas for 30-40 minutes, or until cheese is starting to brown on top.
  • Remove from oven and enjoy!
