This was so good last night, I don't want to forget what I did! This was a great side dish for cheese enchiladas. Adjust the seasonings according to your tastes and the age of your kids. I used the lower end for my 6yo (who ate it without protest) and 20mo (who was not so fond of it). If I were to cook this for just the adults at my house, I would use the upper end. I used really small zucchini for this, less than an inch in diameter and about 5-6 inches long.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄4 onion, thinly sliced
- 4 small zucchini
- 1 -3 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 -3 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Place oil in a large, heavy non-stick skillet and begin heating over medium high heat.
- Meanwhile, slice onion and cut zucchini into 1/4" rounds.
- Once oil is nice and hot, saute onion until it is starting to carmelize (about 2 minutes).
- Add zucchini and seasonings. Turn heat down slightly (to medium), and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Zucchini should be yellow with some brown spots, slightly transparent looking and soft without being mushy. Onions should be thoroughly carmelized and yummy. :).
Delicious!! I only used 2 zucchini and used 1/2 an onion. Loved the seasonings. Made for I Recommend Zaar Tag Game 2010.
A very nice side dish to accompany a mexican-themed menu. This is a winner and it's easy.
I used spiralized noodles, reduced the cooking time by 2 minutes, reduced the amount of salt and used chopped garlic. Yummmmmyyy
