  • 2 medium zucchinis, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • Toppings: diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, avocado slices, salsa, and lime wedges


Prep the Zucchini:

  • Toss zucchini strips with olive oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Ensure the zucchini is evenly coated with the flavorful mix.

Sauté to Perfection:

Warm the Tortillas:

  • In the same skillet or a separate one, warm the corn tortillas for about 20 seconds on each side. This adds a touch of warmth and enhances their pliability.
