I have to admit, this combination of foods and flavors had me a bit worried. It was amazing though! I left out the sour cream and picante sauce, instead I used a jarred guacamole salsa verde. Also, instead of corn tortillas, I used tostada shells. Perfect dinner - we will keep this on our regular rotation.
this was tasty! i couldn't get my corn tortillas to do anything, would have liked to make the bowls another reviewer mentioned, but didn't work for me….. the mix was good alone, without tortillas. i had some leftover broccoli i threw in and used red pepper with the zucchini. also roasted the garlic. didn't use any chiles and forgot the sour cream and picante altogether. will make again.
I didn't have enough zucchini and supplemented with some grilled egg plant that I had in the freezer. Also used crispy tostada shells that I already had on hand. The beans, roasted veggies, picante cream sauce and the relish all melded together really well.
VERY yummy, but a lot of steps for a weeknight dinner. Better suited to a Sunday evening when time is less of an issue. I made individual taco shells: flip over a muffin tin, spray the underside (the outside) of the muffin pan with cooking spray, soften the corn torillas in a microwave for about 30 seconds, then fold the softened tortilla over the bottom of the muffin cups, bake in the oven for about the last ten minutes of the zucchini's roasting time. Fill the tortilla cups as directed in the recipe. I also substituted a bell pepper for the poblano pepper because a family member cannot eat spicy foods. For those of us who wanted a kick, the hot sauce at the end provided the necessary heat. Will definitely make these again.
I used butternut squash instead of zucchini and we really liked it. I wouldn't say I'd make it for a special occasion but a very good weeknight family recipe.
My only issue with this recipe was the length of cooking time recommended for the corn tortilla which rendered them like shoe leather however the beans were fine, the roasted zucchini and poblano pepper mixture was divine and the radish relish is really a keeper that I will make again
This was really so tasty but a real pain to have to prepare it all. I think you could just use refried black beans instead of mashing them up, so that would save a step. I will definitely make this again because tasting all those different flavors made it worth the effort.
