  • Summary

    Smoky grilled vegetables—not a cloying amount of meat or cheese—rule here. Instead of embellishing the enchiladas with a complex (and time-consuming) Mexican pipián (pumpkin-seed sauce), cook a few customary pipián ingredients and then purée them with cilantro for an easy enchilada that's herbaceous and fresh.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large white onion, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
    • 2 red bell peppers, quartered
    • 3/4 pound medium zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
    • 12 (6-to 7-inch) soft corn tortillas
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 6 ounces crumbled queso fresco or ricotta salata
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh serrano chile, including seeds
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 1/3 cups raw green (hulled) pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
    • 2 cups chopped cilantro
    • 1 1/2 cups water
    • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
    • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh serrano chile, including seeds
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • Garnish: cilantro leaves
