As you may know, I love Mexican food. But it’s hard to find Mexican side dishes that are on the healthy side. Sometimes I just want a side of veggies rather than rice!! My Mexican Zucchini Squash Stir Fry is a great side dish for any Mexican inspired meal. This is a Weight Watcher friendly recipe and it’s only 5 SmartPoints per serving!
I love sautéed vegetables, especially zucchini and yellow squash. These veggies are versatile and you can season them to be perfect for any cuisine. You really could add any vegetable into this stir fry. I think mushrooms and even shredded carrots would be a great addition! That’s the beauty of stir frys, you can seriously add in any vegetable or protein and bam, it’s a meal! A ONE-POT MEAL, which is even better.
In this zucchini stir fry, I add corn, black beans, fresh tomatoes, Mexican Spices, and peppers to give it a Mexican flare. This dish is zesty, fresh, AND you can totally make this into vegetarian tacos or even vegetarian enchiladas! In fact, I usually turn my left overs of this recipe into tacos for lunch throughout the week. Two meals in one!! You could also serve this as a side dish for Cheesy Stuffed Peppers or Chicken Suiza Enchiladas.
Once you make Mexican Zucchini Stir Fry, you’ll be making it on a weekly basis!
I hope you enjoy these bites of flavor!
