These quick and easy zucchini enchiladas are an easy weeknight family favorite whether you're vegetarian or not. They feel light and healthy, but they're still filling and satisfying. The secret is all in the homemade sauce: chunky tomatoes and onions, minced garlic, chili powder, honey, and ground cumin make a huge difference here, so don't skip it. Plus, it's even better the next day. Try serving with rice, quinoa, diced or sliced avocado, sautéed onion, a dollop of sour cream, or a squeeze of lime juice.
