This is an extremely popular Mexican side dish. So good, in fact, that Mexicans often double the recipe and eat this as a main with warm tortillas.
Cotija is a sharp, hard Mexican grating cheese. If you can't find cotija, use Parmesan, Pecorino Romano or Mizithra (a hard Greek grating cheese).
Easy to make, lovely blend of flavours and textures and so colourful too. This has become my favourite courgette dish! - 26 Jul 2017
