This calabacitas recipe is a popular Mexican dish that can be used to fill tacos or as a side dish in place of beans and rice. Mexican squash is cooked until tender, and mixed with corn, onion, tomatoes, spicy peppers, and savory seasonings. Serve it at summer barbecues, potlucks, and more.
Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium. Once hot, add in the onions and cook them for a few minutes, or until they are turning translucent.
Add the jalapeño, garlic, squash, corn, tomatoes, Mexican oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper. Reduce the heat to just over low, cover the pan, and cook the mixture until the squash is tender.
