Ingredients

  • 1 pound green zucchini ends removed, cut into 1/2-inch dice

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large medium skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions and chile and cook, stirring occasionally until it softened and barely beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant.
  2. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the zucchini. Sprinkle with salt and cook until it is tender but is still lightly light crunchy, about 4 minutes. Scrape onto a bowl. Incorporate the avocado, toss and taste for salt, add more if need be.
  3. In a pre-heated comal, skillet or griddle set over medium heat, heat the corn tortillas until completely heated through and barely beginning to toast, about a minute per side. Wrap in a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.
  4. To assemble the tacos, spoon the calabacitas and avocado mix, sprinkle some queso fresco, close the taco and eat up or take them to-go!
