- 1. Delicious
- 2. Quick to assemble
- 3. Fresh
Let’s sum it up in one word: TACOS!
You need to know that I believe that tacos are 100% good for you. Fresh veggies, protein, a variety of flavors and textures all wrapped in a warm tortilla. Tacos are a complete meal in the palm of your hand, and these Blackened Zucchini Tacos are no exception.
These vegetarian tacos do not disappoint. Blackened zucchini, black beans, and corn topped with melting Cotija cheese and smoky jalapenos. One bite and it’ll convert the carnivores.
What is Cotija cheese?
Cotija cheese is a crumbly cheese found in the Latin area of the refrigerated section of your grocery store, near the sour cream. If you can’t find Cotija cheese, substitute it with feta or goat cheese. You want a “tart” contrast in the recipe.
Tacos are one way my kids enjoy eating their veggies which is a plus and one of the main sources of inspiration for this cookbook. Taco night became so much fun to eat that I kept doing it, every single week!
These vegetarian zucchini tacos are also excellent weeknight meal since the zucchini cooks quickly in the skillet while the corn and black beans from your pantry are practically begging to be tossed in.
BAM! In just a few minutes, you’re ready to assemble and eat!
What if I zucchini is out of season?
In the summer months, when zucchini is abundant these are the perfect tacos. In winter, you can substitute the zucchini with winter squash or better yet, head over to the freezer section and use a 16-ounce bag of frozen zucchini.

Of course, if you are serving these tacos to kids or can’t handle the heat, leave them out. Whatever rocks your taco.
