      It's a keeper! I must say that I must have been in a fog when I went grocery shopping. I just KNEW I bought a zucchini for this but when I went to the veggie bin - nope! I just added more onion and had a very large green pepper - also added a little minced garlic, and added a can of diced green chilies when I added the beans and corn. Had the tortillas with Colby-Jack and sour cream, and the Old Man and I added hot sauce to ours. A very nice change with a great flavor - and easy to throw together! Thanks.

      I make this all the time and we love it. I always use a red pepper and skip the corn and use a whole can of black beans. We then add some tamed Jalapeños to our burritos just before eating

      I made this as a burrito and agree to add the sour cream and salsa to it. It gives it a little more flavor. I like the idea of the green chilies added to it. I will add it the next time as this is one me and the hubby enjoyed.
