It’s that time of year. I’m desperate for zucchini recipes to keep up with my garden’s production. Since zucchini is originally native to Central America, I wanted to try a Central American recipe for them. I found this calabacitas recipe for Mexican-style zucchini. The recipe is more of a guide than an actual exact recipe. I made it with some adjustments. I didn’t have jalapeƱo so I used dried chilis. I didn’t have Mexican oregano and left it out. The result was fine, but a little bland an underwhelming. I would have like it to be more tomatoey. Next time I might add some tomato paste. Also, maybe the swapped/left out ingredients made the difference.
