Vegetable Tacos

I have been looking for new ways to get more vegetables into the families' diet. I have a hard problem with this because I am the picky eater in the family when it comes veggies. But I have found a great new recipe that it so tasty and also great for the vegetables. All you need is...
1 & 1/2 tsp olive oil
1 red onion slivers
1 zucchini diced
1 & 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 & 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
2 TBS no-salt-added tomato paste
3/4 cup mild salsa
15 oz can black beans, drained
3 TBS chopped fresh cilantro
8 inch tortillas
1. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot (not smoking) over medium heat. Add onions, zucchini, and mushrooms and cook until onions are tender and the juices are flowin.
2. Stir in chili powder, cumin, and corn... cook for about 2 mins.
3. Stir in tomato paste, salsa, black beans, and cilantro. Cook until heated through, about 2 mins.
4. Now you can fill you tacos... top them off with sour cream and cheddar cheese.
This is one of my new favorite recipes. Really easy, super tasty, and low calorie. YOU CAN"T GO WRONG! :)


  1. Sounds delicious!!! And your not that picky... my husband doesn't like tomatoes or mushrooms... so I guess I would have to make this one for me!

  2. I still love the ground beef. I may try this but add meat.

    Sounds good though.


  3. Sounds tasty and I love the taste of fresh cilantro.

  10. I'm leaving a comment on your blog because you are a popular mom-blogger and I am trying to get some info from moms! A lot of the moms I know, and babysitters too, don't know a going rate or what's acceptable to pay a babysitter. So, I'm doing a survey and posting results on my blog. If you would be so kind as to answer the simple ten questions that would be great! If you're feeling REALLY nice, forward this to your friends or blog about it. But it's ok it if you don't too. I just need lots of responses!
