Vegetarian Enchilada

I really wanted to eat Enchilada today and as I was browsing through the web,  found this wonderful recipe which is perfect since I am vegetarian.  Each bite just bursts out with flavor.  You would not miss the meat...

Source: Allrecipes


1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup sliced green onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach , thawed, drained and squeezed dry
5 mushrooms, cubed
1/2 zucchini, cubed
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup sour cream, optional
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese or cheddar cheese
10 (6 inch) corn or flour tortillas
1 (19 ounce) can enchilada sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; cook for a few minutes until fragrant, but not brown. Stir in spinach, zucchini, mushroom and cook for about 5 more minutes. Remove from the heat, and mix in ricotta cheese, sour cream, and 1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, warm tortillas one at a time until flexible, about 15 seconds. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the spinach mixture onto the center of each tortilla. Roll up, and place seam side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour enchilada sauce over the top, and sprinkle with the remaining cup of cheese.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbling and cheese is lightly browned at the edges.
