  4. Add in black beans and cook for abour 3 more minutes until the black beans are heated through. Take off of the heat.
  5. Dividing evenly, spoon the mixture into the zucchinis and place them in the greased baking dish.
  6. Top the zuchinnis with the enchilada sauce.
  7. Optional: top with vegan cheese.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees.
  9. Let cool slightly and ENJOY!!
