Hidden Veggie Chicken Enchiladas

Hidden Veggie Chicken Enchiladas with Zucchini, Spinach, and Corn in a Green Chile Sauce are Family Friendly! |



  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.  Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cook spray and set aside.  
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Cook onion and zucchini for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetable are softened.  Stir in spinach, corn, green chiles, cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder.  Season mixture generously with Kosher salt and cook for 2-3 minutes until flavors are combined.  Remove from heat and stir in chicken and 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese.
  3. Divide mixture among the 8 tortillas and roll closed.  Place tortillas seam side down in the prepared baking dish and pour enchilada sauce over the tortillas.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and enchiladas are heated through.
  4. Remove from oven and top enchiladas with sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, scallions, and cilantro.  Devour.  You can allow the enchiladas to cool completely and then freeze (without the toppings) for a future dinner.  Reheat before serving.


*once spinach is thawed, place in a few paper towels and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.  The paper towels may rip, so just be gentle.
