  1. In a large bowl, mix together chicken, onion, red bell pepper, jalapeño, 1 cup of Monterey Jack, the enchilada sauce, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and lime juice.
  2. With a vegetable peeler, shave the zucchini into ribbons. Once you can no longer peel a whole piece of zucchini, peel the rest into smaller strips and save for zoodles!
  3. Preheat the oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick spray.
  4. Spoon the chicken mixture onto a zucchini ribbon and roll up. Arrange in the prepared springform pan.
  5. Bake the zucchini roll-ups for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cup of Monterey Jack cheese and bake for 10 minutes more, until the cheese has melted.
  6. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve immediately with more enchilada sauce alongside.
