Chunky Veggie Tacos

IMG_5803
This one-skillet-dish is the perfect weeknight dinner with loads of fresh vegetables and it cooks in 30 minutes. The ingredients can easily be adjusted to suit your taste.  Black beans or roasted plum tomatoes would make a great substitution. The veggies also work really well on top of a taco salad. Let’s cook!

Heat oil in a large skillet of medium-high heat.  Add the zucchini, squash, mushrooms, onion, and garlic to the pan.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cumin.

Let cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies are cooked and lightly browned.  Add the salsa, corn, and oregano to the pan.  Stir to combine.

Reduce heat to low and let cook for 10-15 minutes.  Top with cilantro just before serving.
