Beef and Zucchini Tacos


Your basic taco…with a little added green!  Simply throw in some diced zucchini with the beef and you’ve got Beef and Zucchini Tacos!  We had LOTS of ground beef mixture leftover, so I’ll plan to use it on Friday night…I recently came across a VERY INTERESTING vegetable that I’d never heard of before.  And I can’t wait to share this concoction with you on Friday! {I know…this suspense…It must be killing you!}

I will have to try adding zucchini next time we make tacos. I like using leftover taco meat to make taco salad or chili. Can’t wait to see what you are going to make.

Oh. My. Goodness! We had tacos last night and I almost added shredded zucchini to the meat! Great minds think alike…
However, Hub came in just as I began to grate it and said he thought we should have at least one meal without hidden zucchini.

This gave me a giggle! My husband doesn’t like zucchini, and that’s exactly the technique I was thinking when I noticed this recipe called for diced!
