      This recipe is definitely a keeper. I love zucchini, and will add this to my zucchini recipe file. I used mexican flavored canned tomatoes, since I didn't have the Rotel, and I served it with a little bit of cheddar cheese on top...delicious. Thanks for sharing this one!

      I made this dish as a side to fajitas and it was just perfect. The addition of the zucchini and peppers made for a nice crunch and texture difference to the beans and would actually be a great burrito filling. I did skip the oil, salt and cheese. Leftovers made a great bean dip by whirling up in the food processor. Thanks Melissa for sharing the recipe.

      Healthy and full of flavor! We really enjoyed this. I didn't have Rotel on hand, so I improvised with 1 can of diced tomatoes and 1 can of green chiles. I also left out the black olives, as I am not a fan. I also roughly chopped the zucchini instead of just slicing it. I ate this as a main dish, just topped with a bit of cheddar. DH warmed some baked chicken, diced it, and mixed it with the beans-zucchini.
