Cheesy Zucchini Enchiladas

Posted on

These were fantastic. I usually don’t make Mexican dishes at home because they never come out as well as I want them to but we loved these. I’m sure once we get zucchini in the garden I’ll be making this regularly.

I was a little skeptical that this would actually be four servings, but one enchilada was more than enough per person. We’re really looking forward to these leftovers!
