I recently found myself with left over zucchini. I considered making bread or muffins but it was lunch time and I found this recipe while I was looking for snacks I could make with zucchini. It turned out delicious, I will definitely be using this recipe again. For a little variety you can also use the black beans and zucchini mixture in a tortilla wrap or as I did on left over hamburger buns toasted with melted cheese.

  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped zucchini
  • 4 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese


1. Combine beans and salsa in a small bowl; mash with a fork. Stir in zucchini. 2. Layer 1 tortilla with half the bean mixture, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese, and top with another tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortillas, bean mixture, and cheese. 3. In broiler or toaster oven, cook quesadillas 1 minute on each side until cheese is melted and bubbly. Or microwave for 1 minute.
