    This is delicious and unique! I love the combination of zuchinni, beans, and corn. I omitted the poblano and added about 1 tsp. of ground cumin and 1 tsp. of chili powder to perk up the flavors. I served with low-fat cheddar cheese and taco sauce. I can't wait to have this again!!  -  27 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Somewhat bland. My grandmother's recipe always used jalapeno, diced red pepper, fresh cut corn off the cob, diced zucchini & yellow squash and perhaps a bit of cilantro and no beans. We use this as a filling for a warm tortilla. It's a nice meatless meal.  -  07 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Easy! I prepared this the night before and carried it to a pitch-in. It was a great side with the fajitas that were served. I did add a can of tomatoes and chilis. I am glad I did. I think it would have been a bit bland. It was also great warmed up and covered with a bit of cheese. I'll make it again.  -  06 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
