Harvest Veggie Enchiladas with Crema Verde

The weather is supposed to be in high seventies this week. Feels like fall, right?

Maybe not, but I’ll take it compared to last week’s 80s and 90s. Even though the weather is not cooperating, I’m starting to to crave heartier foods and fall flavors (pumpkin in everything!).

I’ve even turned on my oven a few times to make these Harvest Veggie Enchiladas with Crema Verde. #WorthTheHeat

Harvest Veggie Enchiladas with Crema Verde | Hello Little Home #recipe #Mexican #vegetarianDon’t worry, you won’t have to stand over a hot stove for hours to enjoy these cheesy enchiladas. They’re easy to make, yet completely delicious.

To make these Harvest Veggie Enchiladas, I quickly sauteed end-of-summer corn and zucchini, combined the veggies with black beans and warm Mexican spices, and then wrapped this tasty filling in fresh corn tortillas.

My favorite part of this dish is the Crema Verde, and it couldn’t be easier to make! Simply blend together sour cream and green salsa, and you’ve got a rich, delicious sauce.

Give these veggie enchiladas a try. They’re the perfect bridge between summer and fall!

Harvest Veggie Enchiladas with Crema Verde

Yield: 12 enchiladas

Serving Size: 2 - 3 enchiladas per person

Harvest Veggie Enchiladas with Crema Verde


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large zucchini, diced
  • 1 ear corn, husked and kernels removed
  • 1 (15-oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp, salt
  • 1 16-oz. jar green salsa
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Prepare enchilada filling:
  4. Heat olive oil over medium-high in a large frying pan.
  5. Saute onion, stirring often, until it begins to brown around the edges (about 5 minutes).
  6. Add zucchini and corn kernels to pan.
  7. Cook, stirring frequently, until zucchini begins to soften.
  8. Reduce heat to medium.
  9. Stir black beans into vegetables and cook until heated through.
  10. Add garlic, cumin, oregano, and salt to pan and cook until fragrant (about 1 minute), stirring constantly.
  11. Remove pan from heat and season to taste with additional salt, if desired. Set aside.
  12. Make crema verde:
  13. Place salsa and sour cream in a medium bowl. Whisk until combined.
  14. Assemble enchiladas:
  15. Cover the bottom of the baking dish with a layer of crema verde.
  16. Wrap 4 tortillas in a paper towel or dish cloth.
  17. Heat tortillas in microwave for 45 seconds or until very hot.
  18. Carefully remove 1 tortilla and place it on a flat surface (keep the remaining tortillas covered so they don't dry out).
  19. On one end of the tortilla, place 1/12 of the vegetable filling.
  20. Roll up the tortilla tightly and place it in the baking dish.
  21. Repeat this process with the remaining 3 tortillas and then heat 4 more tortillas and repeat again.
  22. After all the tortillas are filled, cover them with the remaining crema verde.
  23. Top the enchiladas with the cheddar cheese.
  24. Bake enchiladas until heated through and cheese is melted, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  25. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!


If your tortillas are very dry, wrap them in a slightly damp paper towel or dish cloth before microwaving. You could also heat them on the stove, like I did for my Black Bean and Cream Cheese Enchiladas.

Oh man, your posts always make me hungry! The ingredients just look so fresh and delicious! (I also can’t imagine how difficult it is to take food pictures!!) I’m the same in that the weather hasn’t made me crave fall foods yet. I did indulge in a Pumpkin Spice Latte last week but the whole time I was thinking I should have ordered an iced coffee instead! (I don’t like the iced lattes for whatever reason. They don’t taste the same to me.)

What a pretty, colorful dish! I’m totally into fall foods these days. I’m baking a loaf of pumpkin chocolate chip bread as I type this. I’m also simmering a pot of veggie chili for dinner. I’m going to try a vegan version of your enchiladas, they look so good and healthy.

What a wonderful dish! Loving the fresh flavors that you used 🙂 Plus you can never go wrong with green salsa. I could swim in that stuff! No actually, I take that back, I’d rather eat it. But you get the idea 🙂

These look so good! And what a great way to use some of that summer zucchini!

I am soooo pinning this, looks delish!

My mouth is watering!! I pink puffy heart enchiladas!

I love a good enchilada but have never made them myself before, definitely something that I need to do. These look delicious!

Looks like a delicious and healthy treat!
