My son is so not a veggie lover, especially zucchini and corn but he not only ate one helping, he ate two!!! I added a green bell pepper, garlic & a can of black beans (drained & rinsed) to the vegetable mixture. I had leftover corn on the cob so I just chopped the kernels off and used that instead of frozen. Like other reviewers mentioned as a good addition, I added a few dashes of cumin and cayenne to the veggie mix. I assembled this casserole by starting with sauce, then tortillas, then more sauce, half of the veggie mixture, reduced fat Mexican cheese blend, tortillas, sauce, veggies, cheese, tortillas, sauce, cheese and topped it all off with some minced chives from the garden and popped it into the oven. Don't be shy with the enchilada sauce (I just used the brand I had) in your layers or this will be dry but too much will make it a mushy mess. I didn't measure how much I used but I would say I used about 1/2 a cup for each layer. Served it with a dollop of sour cream, chopped cilantro and some pickled jalapeno peppers. If this got my kid to eat veggies, it is a MUST for our regular rotation. ! love recipes that push those vegetables!!! :)
