It’s zucchini season and they are the absolute star of this cheesy zucchini taco skillet. An easy one-pan meal that’s delicious enjoyed on its own, paired with rice, or stuffed into warm tortillas. There are only a few fresh ingredients this zucchini taco skillet requires, as most are canned or frozen. Further, this recipe makes for a great quick weeknight meal when you’re low on groceries!
Firstly, I use a pre-made taco seasoning in this vegetarian taco skillet, but if you don’t have one in your spice cabinet you can certainly make it yourself. Here’s a great recipe of chili powder, sea salt, smoked paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, and black pepper. Go big and make a big batch to keep on-hand for other recipes too! You can store it in a small mason jar or use an old emptied spice container.
