For those of us who freeze grated Zucchini. Or, if like me, you grow it in the garden. I happen to enjoy Zucchini Squash. I have just finished ordering a bunch of seed for my garden so I got this recipe on my mind. There are several versions and I just kind of make mine from parts of 2-3 others. It's real tasty and colorful to slide in with dried beans, Mexican cornbread and cream corn.
