Skillet Mexican Zucchini

Chopped zucchini pairs well with ground beef. I came up with this Mexican Zucchini and beef skillet dish recipe one night for an easy dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb zucchini, diced
  • 1 large tomato, cored, seeded and diced
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro or Garden Gourmet cilantro paste
  • 1 tsp minced pickled jalapeño
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso blanco (or queso fresco, cotija or feta)
  • fresh lime juice, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

Cook the garlic in oil in a large skillet over medium heat 1 minute, stirring until sizzling. Add zucchini and cook stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes or until slightly softened. Add the tomato and green
 onion and cook about 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and add cilantro paste, jalapeño and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste and top with queso blanco. Serve hot.
