Fiesta Zucchini

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by GaylaJ

Squash with a bit of a Tex-Mex twist. I served this as something different to side with tacos and just used what I had on hand: a zucchini and a yellow summer squash, hot and spicy chipotle salsa, and a colby-monterey jack blend. This was adapted from a reader-submitted (Desiree Zamorano) recipe in Bon Appetit.

I now know what to do when i have too much zucchini and summer squash. I could eat this whole pan. :) It also comes together fast which is great!
