Zucchini Enchiladas

So, the detox failed.

I made it until 6pm but I’ve been cranky and grouchy and tired and kind of sick all week and I felt like I needed some serious protein and more than just quinoa and steamed veggies. So, I had an egg sandwich with cheese and a banana with peanut butter. Vegetarian protein central.

Anyway, on a total non-detox note, these are delicious. They have lots of cheese and lots of character and make you feel like a mom because moms make enchiladas. Right? That’s a mom thing to cook, right? I feel like it is. Anything that requires baking in an over for over 20 minutes is the equivalent of something totally mom-ish. So, casseroles, enchiladas, and things of that nature.

Make these. Seriously. They are good for lots of people, too. I halved the recipe so I could have two enchiladas one night and then two the next day. Loooooove leftovers.

I added a little fresh cilantro and it gave the enchiladas some serious character. Cilantro gives things a tropical feel. Like, hey I’m sitting on a hammock and drinking a mojito while eating these enchiladas.
