Zucchini and Corn

This is the side dish I made to go with the Mexican Picadillo from my last post.  I thought it was really good together and I will for sure be making both recipes again.  I also like that this recipe uses fresh summer produce!

Mexican Picadillo

You have to try this!  It is so good.  My kids also really liked it.

The only note I have on the recipe is that it took me longer than the recipe stated to cook it.  My potatoes still were not tender after the recommended time.  I ended up covering mine to get them tender.  Next time, I will cover it to cook until the potatoes are tender then remove the lid until the excess moisture is reduced.  If you are on a gluten-free diet, make sure the beef broth/stock you use is gluten-free.

If you like this recipe, you may also like Meat Potatoes & Green Beans (EF, DF, GF).
