As a new mom, I’m trying to balance my home life but know how important sitting down to a meal with family is every day. I want to instill this tradition early on with our son. We set aside time to enjoy each other’s company everyday and it’s only natural that it should be surrounding a great meal. He’s not eating table food yet but he LOVES to watch his mommy and daddy eat. Today I’m sharing a recipe using two brands I genuinely endorse, Wholesome Pantry products from ShopRite and Frontera products. My Green Zucchini Enchiladas are the ideal meal to get the family at the table.

So what is a zucchini enchilada you ask? I simply swapped the tortillas out for a more carb friendly, zucchini wrap. I promise, you won’t event miss the tortillas is this dish. The loads of flavor in this dish really come from Frontera’s robust green enchilada sauce. It’s got garlic, spices and a hint of heat. I slowly simmered chicken in a slow cooker with the sauce and added in some Wholesome Pantry organic black beans.

I also top off the enchilada rolls with more sauce and of course shredded cheese to make them ooey, gooey delicious. After baking these off, I added tomatoes, cilantro and avocado as an extra pop of authentic flavor. But don’t forget a side of Frontera Mexicana Mild Salsa too. I loved to dip each bite in this.

I do want to share why I love these products I’m working with today. First, we all know I’m all about time-saving tips. For me, that’s often just shopping at my local ShopRite because it’s right up the street from me, and I can get everything I need. Both of these brands can be found at your local ShopRite, so it makes for easy pick up. Frontera sauces like the one I used today are perfect because they come ready to use and just easily pair with your favorite protein. It’s premium ingredients with authentic flavors and believe me you can taste the difference. This stuff is good!

Wholesome Pantry is my everyday ShopRite brand. I use their boneless skinless chicken breasts weekly (ahem..like this recipe!). Do you want to know what the best part about using this brand is?  I can feel good about serving it to my family and eating it myself. They removed 110 artificial ingredients so there is no extra flavors, colors, or preservatives. Essentially, they left only the good stuff!

All in all this recipe is a light version of a hearty meal. It uses products you can count on and ingredients you’ll love! And It’s 100% original from me, so I hope you enjoy!

I’ll leave you with one last note for those local to ShopRite. At participating ShopRite store locations, you can visit an in-store registered dietitian for FREE (I mean dietitians are expensive, so this is BIG people!) – for product and recipe recommendations, to shop the store with you, etc. (*not available at all stores*)

  • 1 tomato, diced

  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Using a mandolin slicer ( at 1/8 inch setting) cut your zucchini slices vertically. Please be careful while slicing!!
  5. Get a 9X11 baking dish ready to use. Once the chicken is ready it’s time to roll the enchiladas.
  6. Line up 3 slices of zucchini so they are just overlapping. Add a heaping spoonful of chicken and bean mixture to one of the edges. Use your hands to carefully roll the enchilada. Place “flap” side down in the baking dish so they don’t fall apart.

  8. Pour other packet of green enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the baking dish.
  9. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
