Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tsp. minced jalapeño pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 medium tomato, chopped ( 1/3 cup)
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped ( 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese

Preparation

  1. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeño, garlic, tomato, green onion, zucchini and corn. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables start to soften, about 2 minutes. Add cilantro and pepper. Set aside in a colander to drain over a bowl.
