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.3Reply
