Lastly, I promise, though this recipe seems long and convoluted, it is a very simple easy thing to make.
|It tastes better than it looks|
a little Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic minced
1 lg. Onion chopped
1 Green Pepper chopped
1 med./lg. Zucchini sliced or chunked
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 cups Corn
2 cups Black Beans drained
1 1/2 Tbsp Cumin
6 Tbsp Salsa
Salt and Pepper to taste
a little Cilantro (either dried or freshly chopped)
*Step 4 (Tortillas)
a little Olive Oil
several Tortillas (can be flour, whole wheat, corn, it is up to your preference)
Chedder Cheese shredded
*This is not an essential step, if wanted one could just serve the filling with rice (see Cilantro Lime Rice recipe), or by itself, over chips, on a plain tortilla...you get the picture
Sautee together all ingredients from Step 1 in a little bit of olive oil for a few minutes.
Add ingredients from Step 2. If you desire, drain the Black Beans first so that their extra liquid is not added, if the mix looks a bit dry, add a bit of the bean water or a little more vegetable broth. DO NOT use dried Black Beans. Cook until Zucchini begins to look slightly translucent
Once mixture is cooked enough (Zucchini is soft, not crunchy at all) add ingredients from Step 3 and continue to simmer, stirring enough to keep the beans from fusing to the bottom of the pan, until there is no excess liquid remaining.
Fry Tortilla in a pan with a little olive oil (to keep it from sticking) until slightly crispy brown.
Add a little shredded Cheese to melt onto the Tortilla.
Remove Tortilla from pan and add 1/4-1/2 cup of the filling and some extra Cheese.
Fold tortilla over, use a toothpick to keep it folded in half if needbe.
Repeat until desired number of Tortillas are made. To keep them warm while you make each one, put on a cookie sheet in an oven on low heat.
Serve with Sour Cream, Salsa, Chips, Guacamole or whatever suits your fancy!!!
|I served with leftover Chicken from a barbeque, but it is totally optional. Obviously to serve with Chicken means NOT vegetarian|
*Alternatively, if you do not want to use Tortillas you can serve this with Cilantro Lime Rice, or over chips, or just plain.
