Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9”-x-13” baking pan with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 5 minutes, then add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Add ground beef and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat.
Return skillet to stove then add 1 cup enchilada sauce, chili powder, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Let simmer 5 minutes.
On a cutting board, use a Y-shaped vegetable peeler to make thin slices of zucchini. Lay out three slices, slightly overlapping, and place a spoonful of beef mixture on top. Roll up and transfer to baking dish. Repeat with remaining zucchini and beef mixture.
Spoon remaining 1/2 cup enchilada sauce over zucchini enchiladas and sprinkle with both cheeses.
Bake until cheese is melty, 20 minutes.
Garnish with sour cream and cilantro before serving.
