SERVING

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil, plus extra for frying
  • 1 small white onion, sliced into 1/8-inch slices (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 medium-sized zucchini, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 tsp. minced jalapeño chile with seeds
  • 1 cup (1/4 lb.) grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas
  • lime wedges for garnish

Preparation

  1. Warm 2 Tbs. oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes, or until golden. Stir in zucchini, corn and jalapeño. Cook 4 minutes, or until zucchini is tender, stirring often. Remove from heat; add cheese and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place 1 tortilla in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Top with 1/4 zucchini mixture, and set second tortilla on top.
