      Yummo, what a great side for mexican..I added some cumin & coriander to the garlic before adding the remaining ingredients..for vegies I used zucchini, capsicum, mushrooms along with the corn & tomatoes..definitely will make this again. Thanks for posting!

      It's one of my favorite ways to use up the abundance of zucchini. I did add some cumin and one fire-roasted green chile and instead of adding the cheese and letting it go on the stovetop I added the cheese and threw it in the oven to get crusty on top. Very good calabacitas. Leftovers just get better and better....I also mix them with some scrambled eggs, throw them in a tortilla and call them breakfast burritos! Even my non-veggie eating son will eat them.

      Good side dish for a Mexican or Tex-Mex meal. No need to peel the zucchini; the peel definitely adds color and texture.
