Recipe Box, Zucchini & Corn Enchiladas or Creamy Zucchini & Corn Crepes

My family loves enchiladas, and I’m always looking for variations

This vegetarian version can be served as a main dish or a side with grilled meat

 

 

If you’re not a fan of Tex-Mex, wait! 

Substitute a white sauce or a creamed soup* for the enchilada sauce for a delightful twist on this comfort filled dish, called Creamy Zucchini & Corn Crepes

*Mix Cream of Mushroom, Celery or Chicken Soup with 1/2 cup of sour cream for an alternative sauce

 

 

Begin by slicing about 1/2 of 1 medium zucchini into very thin slices, and reserve the slices for topping the assembled enchiladas

 

 

Slice the remaining zucchini into 1/3″ inch slices, cutting the larger pieces in half,  and place them on a parchment lined pan

 

 

Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and  pepper

 

 

Roast at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until nice and soft

 

 

While zucchini is roasting, saute onion and prepare corn if needed

see easy cooking and shucking methods here

 

 

When onion and zucchini have finished cooking, combine with corn in the skillet and season again with salt and pepper

 

 

Set up an assembly station by laying out tortillas and filling ingredients

 

 

Pour about 1/3 sauce in bottom of a 9″ inch round or 8″ square, greased baking dish

Spread each tortilla with a layer of refried beans and top with a thin layer of sour cream,* and sprinkle with taco seasoning

*or spread with a layer of white sauce or creamed soup mixture

 

 

Next divide filling among tortillas, placing a row of filling, slightly off-center, of each tortilla and sprinkle with a little cheese

 

 

Roll up from the side nearest the row of filling, by folding the side over the filling and rolling up as tightly as possible

 

 

Place seam side down in prepared dish, squeezing enchiladas to fit

 

 

Cover enchiladas or “crepes” with remaining sauce

Top with reserved zucchini slices and grated cheese

Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours at this point if desired.  Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes until hot and bubbly.  Baking time will depend on temperature of prepared dish at starting time.

Meanwhile sauté onion in a skillet with 1 T olive oil and 1 T butter, over medium low heat, until it begins to caramelize. Add corn and zucchini and stir to combine.  Season with salt & pepper.

Place about 1/3 can of sauce in the bottom of a 9″ round or 8″ square greased baking dish. Roll up tortillas, starting from the side closest to filling,  and place them seam side down on sauce in dish. Garnish enchiladas with reserved zucchini slices.  Cover with remaining sauce and cheese. Bake at 350, 30-45 minutes. Adjust baking time if dish is refrigerated before baking.

Non Tex-Mex version:

    Sometimes it is nice to have a veg meal. Your trick with the towel when you are taking the kernels off the cob is a great idea. I have to say I was chasing mine at first until I put the cob in a bowl.
