Debbie's Zucchini Santa Fe Recipe

Description: We love this recipe. Its a family favorite.

In the summer months, we make about once a week. It goes good with all kinds of grilled meals, or Mexican dishes. There are no hot spices or hot peppers in it. Even the kids will like it.

Contributed by: Debbie Matthews in Rochester, NY.

  • 3 cups sliced zucchini. You can also use summer squash.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
