My husband and I love Mexican food. We love it messy and call a night of great eats “Messed-Up Mexican.” That’s a good thing, I assure you.
By mixing black beans with the ground beef, I can stretch a small amount of meat to make it feed the entire family.
The beef and beans is a snap to fix if you have your browned ground beef already in the freezer. Just pull out a pack of beef and a pack of black beans from one of your freezer cooking days, place in a microwave-safe container, zap it until thawed and then stir in a packet of Mexican seasoning with 1/4 cup water. Return to the microwave for 2 minutes. Done.
How to Grill Zucchini
Grilling zucchini is very easy.
Heat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat and brush with olive oil. Cut the zucchini in half and then slice into quarters length-wise. Brush the zucchini with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.
Place zucchini in grill pan and allow to cook until you have grill marks. Then, flip the zucchini. Repeat until you have grill marks on all three sides.
Resist grabbing a fork and digging into the bowl.
If you are missing the taco shells, you can always make a Grilled Zucchini Taco Stack. Just as delicious and remarkably good for you. Just layer the beef and beans over grilled zucchini and top with guaca-salsa and any other toppings you desire.
