Grilled Veggie Soft Tacos

Thanks Missy! I'm excited to be a guest on this food blog. It's always good to find new recipes, and I have already used some on this blog. I'd like to share something we had for dinner this week and something we absolutely love! And as is the case with most recipes, I got this from someone else. So to give credit where credit is due - this is from my cousin Robyn, who copied it from a Tex-Mex restaurant. This is a great summer dish because it's a little lighter and SO good. Enjoy!

1 yellow squash

1 yellow onion

1 clove minced


1 zucchini

Seasonings (I have only used chili powder and cumin sprinkled over the veggies, but you could do lemon and salt and pepper or whatever else you like)

Can of black beans

Grated cheese

Salsa Verde (or regular)

Sour Cream

Soft taco sized flour tortillas



Cut the zucchini and yellow squash lengthwise in half and then into ½ inch pieces. Chop onion and mince garlic. Sautee garlic, onion and veggies in a little olive oil in skillet until preferred crispness of vegetables. Add preferred seasonings.

Then just add black beans, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream on top. You could also make a little pico de gallo to put on top in place of the salsa verde. Dicing tomatoes with cilantro, lemon, salt and pepper & a little olive oil.

This look SO good Ann Marie! I can't wait to make it. Maybe this weekend? I love all of these veggies so combine them into a taco??!

This sounds great. For some reason I always feel like dinner has to include some sort of meat. I'm excited to try something different!
