Cheesy Creamy Calabazitas

Delicious creamy zucchini stir fry with tomato, onion, garlic


Serves 4

3 zucchini, chopped (650 gr)

2 red tomatoes, chopped

1/4 onion, finely chopped

1 clove of garlic, chopped

1 jalapeño or serrano pepper, optional

1 cup cooked yellow corn

Butter or oil, to taste

1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese

1/2 cup of heavy cream

1/2 cup of roasted chiles (poblano, NM or anaheim)

Salt and pepper to taste


Melt the butter or heat the oil.

Add the onion and garlic and cook about 3 minutes or until it looks smooth and transparent.

Add the chili (optional) and the tomato. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until the tomato softens and disintegrates a little.

Add the zucchini and corn. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cover the pot and cook about 8 to 10 minutes or until the zucchini is soft. I do not like the vegetables to be very soft, if you do, cook a few more minutes or until they are the way you like it.

Add the cheese, cream and the roasted chiles just at the end of the cooking. Cook a few more minutes and serve with some of our delicious Natural Grains Tortillas.
