Recipe by Kumquat the Cat's friend
A most refreshing low-cal burrito. BF found this on an Australian website, and he changed it a bit and stuffed it into a tortilla. Not a burrito you want to eat with your hands, but really, really good. We used the low-fat substitutions. The filling alone makes a terrific side dish.

Love this recipe! I added a few odds and end that were in the fridge and needed to be used up, sliced black olives, minced jalapeno, two chopped breakfast sausages and pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. So versatile and delicious, light but satisfying. Thanks for posting the recipe, I'll be making this often.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano (dried)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with jalapenos (or Rotel, or tomatoes with chiles)
- 4 flour tortillas (we used jalapeno & cilantro flavored)
- 1⁄2 cup salsa (or to taste)
- 1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese or 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 4 tablespoons low-fat yogurt (or to taste) or 4 tablespoons sour cream (or to taste)
