Spicy Black Beans and Zucchini

2 WWPP Posted by 8 years ago 22 Comments

I LOVE taco night, it’s one of my all time favorites. However, I never know what to make for a side dish. I mean beans are good but they are a little bland all by themselves.

So with my spice cabinet and a leftover zucchini in hand I whipped this up. You could use it as a side dish, as the taco “meat”, or my favorite, filling for a quesadilla. I’ve made 2 since Friday with the leftovers! Spicy Black Beans and Zucchini

  • Thick slice of sweet onion diced
  • Small zucchini diced
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • 1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp salsa
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Spray an medium pot with non-stick cooking spray and warm over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for a few minutes until they start to soften.

Add the zucchini and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Cook for a few minutes then spinkle with the spices. Stir in the beans and salsa.

Lower the heat and stir occasional until ready to serve.

    I made this for lunch yesterday and had it in a quesadilla. It was excellent. I have some leftover and I thought I would add a little more salsa and have it over rice today. If you have not tried this - you should. It is excellent! Reply

    I made this last week to have with fajitas. I really liked it. My family didn't even try it(they are bad). I had it as a side that night and then a few days later I made one of your quesadillas. Tonight I am going to mix it with a little spaghetti squash. I think if I make it again I will leave out the curry. Reply

    Holy cow! So good. I am on the Core Program and this fits in perfectly. I spent the points on tortillas and made quesadillas. With some fat free cheese and fat free sour cream it is a great 2-3 points. Reply

    This was AWESOME! I didnt have chili powder so I used chili paste and hot salsa and it worked just as well. Tasted really good as a side along with baked plantains and mexican chicken! Thanks Roni! Reply
