  • 2 medium zucchinis, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded (you can also use cooked ground turkey or beef)
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • 2 cup shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper (any color you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, diced avocado, sliced jalapenos


  1. Preheat your oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil.
  2. Prepare the filling: In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked chicken, black beans, diced onion, diced bell pepper, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Assemble the roll-ups:
    • Lay a zucchini slice flat on a clean surface.
    • Spoon a small amount of the filling mixture onto one end of the zucchini slice.
    • Roll the zucchini slice tightly around the filling, creating a roll-up.
    • Place the zucchini roll-up seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
    • Repeat with the remaining zucchini slices and filling.

  1. Top with enchilada sauce and cheese:
    • Once all the roll-ups are assembled in the baking dish, pour the enchilada sauce evenly over the top.
    • Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the enchilada sauce.
  2. Bake:
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  1. Serve:
    • Once done, remove the foil from the baking dish.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro.
    • Serve the zucchini enchilada roll-ups hot, with optional toppings like sour cream, diced avocado, and sliced jalapenos.
