“Another winner from Jeanne Lemlin's Quick Vegetarian Pleasures. I usually like my Mexican dishes spicy, but there is something about this simple sauce I love. It brings out the flavor of the vegetables. I make the sauce as written, but feel free to add any favorite spices to it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute 5 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and oregano and cook until tender but not mushy, about 7 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the chiles, beans, salt and pepper. Let the mixture cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. To make the sauce, combine the tomato puree, heavy cream, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. To assemble the enchiladas, pour a layer of sauce on bottom of large casserole dish. Spoon one eighth of the bean mixture along center of tortilla, then sprinkle on 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Roll the enchilada and place seam-side down in baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  4. Spoon the remaining sauce over all the enchiladas, and sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  5. Bake 25 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
