I was skeptical to try this recipe, but was surprised at the great flavor. I'm not a big spinach and zucchini eater, but this recipe has changed that for me.

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse zucchini. Cut off ends. Shred. Place in strainer. (Mash any excess water out of zucchini or it will cause tortillas to be soggy)
