Everyone was scared and they thought they would be gross....

Posted by   + Show Post

But, my summer squash enchiladas were a hit!  Omg, they were soooo good.  Everyone ate with only a few pieces of squash conveniently left behind on a couple of plates. The great thing was, not one person complained!

Here is what I did:


I made a veggie filling of patty pan squash, zucchini, yellow summer squash, onions, garlic and jalapeno. After they were sauteed, I seasoned them up with salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne, and a sprinkling of Mexican chili powder.


I whipped up some homemade enchilada sauce:


I made my assembly line.  I used thick corn tortillas, the veggie filling, and a cheese blend.



After they were all rolled:



Finished product topped with cilantro:


And this is what was left:



Dinner Success!!!

Cilantro is an odd thing.  Many people's taste receptors receive it as soap...lol.

Yay!

Quoting TrouserMouse:

Nope!!  :)  He started to pick it apart at first and I said, "Why don't you just take some bites the way it is to see if you like it."  He at it and only left some of the squash on his plate.  When he threw his plate away, he said it was good.  :D

We have a couple of picky eaters and they all ate.  :)

Quoting bellasmom_01:

Yummy!!! I wonder if my kids would eat that... can't get them to eat veggies to save my soul. But if they're hidden in cheesy Mexican yumminess maybe i could pass it off.
