Farmers Market Enchiladas

These vegetarian enchiladas use a lot of garden favorites in a quick weeknight meal. Feel free to substitute whatever vegetables you have from your garden—yellow summer squash, eggplant and corn all taste great here, too. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grv, Utah

  • Makes
    7 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro, divided
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 14 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) enchilada sauce

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, poblano, mushrooms and tomatoes; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with cumin, salt and cayenne. Toss to coat. Divide vegetable mixture between 2 lightly greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Roast 15 minutes; rotate pans top to bottom. Roast an additional 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Return to bowl and cool slightly.
  • Stir in Monterey Jack cheese, 1/2 cup queso fresco, 1/4 cup cilantro and lime juice. Place a scant 1/2 cup vegetable mixture off center on each tortilla. Roll up and place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, seam side down. Top with enchilada sauce; sprinkle with remaining queso fresco.
  • Bake, uncovered, until enchiladas are heated through and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Top with remaining cilantro.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Roasting the veggies before making the enchiladas takes extra time, but it adds so much flavor! Don't skip it.
  • Poblano peppers are mild and great for stuffing, since they have thick walls. Anaheim or bell peppers are good substitutes.
