Vegetarian Times, May/June 2009
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
6 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
1 diced jalapeno (my addition)
2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (2 cups)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels (I used Trader Joe's roasted corn)
1/2 cup cooked black beans
1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice
Chili powder, for sprinkling
1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese, optional
Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and jalapeno, and saute 7 minutes. Add zucchini and corn, and saute 7 minutes more. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Spoon into Oven-Baked Sopes or tacos, and sprinkle with chili powder and cheese, if using.
- I am a school administrator, wife, mother, and grandmother. My life is busy--more so than I would like. My 48th birthday has come and gone, 49 is looming just around the corner, and I realize that 50 is not far behind. It is time to stop saying, "Someday," and start living my life--right now!
