Ingredients

6 calabacitas or 4 zuchinni

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp cilantro lime seasoning

1 tbsp Chile verde seasoning

corn tortillas

shredded chihuahua cheese or any other melting cheese (optional)

Salsa

pico de Gallo

Directions

Step 1

Cut the both ends off the calabacitas or the zucchini. Then cut each one in half lengthwise, then in half once again, so each one will be in fourths.

Step 2

Coat the calabacitas in the olive oil, then sprinkle them all over with the seasonings, toss them around to combine. If you don't have the seasonings I am using, you can easily use any combination of your favorite seasonings such as garlic powder, onion powder, lemon pepper, paprika, salt, pepper, etc.

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp cilantro lime seasoning

1 tbsp Chile verde seasoning

Step 3

Set a large skillet on medium high heat. Once hot, place the calabacitas in the pan. These cook super fast, they only need about 2-3 minutes per side. They'll take no more than 8-10 minutes. Once cooked, turn off the heat and set aside.

Step 4

To warm up the corn tortillas, set a coral or another large skillet to medium heat. Once hot, warm up each tortilla for about 20 seconds per side. Optionally, you can heat up each tortilla for 20 seconds, flip it over, sprinkle an even layer of cheese over the tortilla, wait about 20-30 seconds for the cheese to start melting, flip over the tortilla so the cheese is now directly on the pan and cook for another 20-30 seconds.

Step 5

To serve the tacos, place 2 pieces of the calabacitas on each tortilla, top it off with your favorite salsa and pico de gallo and as always, a fresh squeeze of lime juice.
