  • 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp ground cumin,1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 medium zucchini cut into 1/2-inch round disks
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3/4 cup corn cut from the cob (about 1 ear—or substitute frozen, thawed corn)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 can low sodium black beans rinsed and drained
  • 8 to rtillas fajita/taco size
  • Toppings: Sliced cherry tomatoes cut into quarters, cilantro and fresh avocado


  • In a large skillet, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium high. While the oil heats, combine the chili powder, cumin, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Once the oil is hot and shiny, add the zucchini rounds in a single layer, then sprinkle with half the spice mixture. Let cook until the first side is golden, about 4 minutes, then flip, sprinkle with the remaining spice mixture, and cook on the other side until it is golden as well, 3-4 additional minutes. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Reduce the skillet heat to medium low. Add the onion and corn and let cook until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, corn, and beans, then cook until the garlic is fragrant and the beans are heated through, about 2-3 minutes.
  • If desired, toast the tortillas over a gas burner or cover with a lightly damp paper or kitchen towel and warm in the microwave. Fill tortillas with the bean mixture and reserved zucchini slices, then add any desired toppings. Enjoy immediately.
