How to Make It

Pour 1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce into a shallow dish and set it aside. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini and cook until it's tender-crisp. Stir the remaining enchilada sauce in the skillet. Dip the tortillas in the reserved enchilada sauce to coat. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in another 12-inch skillet. Add 3 tortillas, overlapping as little as possible. Cook for 1 minute, turning once. Fold the tortillas in half and place on 1 plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and tortillas, placing them on 3 more plates. Sprinkle the tortillas with crumbled queso anejo or freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. Top with the zucchini mixture and thinly shredded lettuce, if desired.
