My dear friend gifted me with some amazing zucchini this past weekend. I started thinking of some culinary opportunities. The original options of stir-fry, zucchini bread and ratatouille came to mind but I wanted something extraordinary.

A casserole, perhaps, but something with a Mexican flavor. This came together in a matter of minutes and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

You can add your own flair by topping it with fresh avocado slices, cilantro or simply a dash of lime juice.

ENJOY!
