Hello! I hope you are having a beautiful day! Thanks for stopping by! Two weeks ago I was craving something warm and comforting for my families belly, so I decided to make an old family favorite: Calabazitas con queso!
This recipe is super easy to make, especially if you want to freeze an extra for those hectic days! I understand completely mama!
Now I just threw all of this together to make it quick and easy. This of course is not my recipe but this is how I grew up eating it. I kinda tweaked it on my own like adding tomato "Knorr Suiza Caldo de tomate" vs just the chicken one. I also added corn cause my husband loves corn!
Lets get cooking!
- 3-4 Zucchinis or 2 yellow squash + 2 zuchinis
- 2 Cubes of "Knorr Suiza Caldo de Tomate"
- 1 Cube of "Knorr Suiza Onion Cubes" or use fresh onion.
- 1 Can of corn
- 2 Cans of Diced Tomato
- 2-3 Cups of cheese of your preference. Mine was Mexican cheese.
How To Make:
- In a big pot, drizzle some olive oil because you are going to saute your zucchinis in that. bring to high heat!
- Cut the zucchini into quarters and throw them into the pot and saute away! Do this for about a minute!
- Add the two cans of diced tomato, and then add two cans of water to the pot along with the can of corn. I prefer my soup to be hearty so I don't add too much liquid and well my husband is so damn picky..
- Add the two cubes of Knorr Suiza and the onion cube! Stir well so it breaks down and you won't bite into a chunk of it..
- You want to lower the heat to medium and leave it for 20-30 minutes stirring occationally.
- Remove from heat and add cheese! Stir well!
- There you have it! Enjoy!
*If you feel like it needs more flavor, add more Knorr Suiza or garlic salt.
If you are vegetarian, they make veggie bullion that practically tastes the same. I used to use it when I was a vegetarian a few years ago and I couldn't tell the difference.
This feeds about 6-8 servings so you can most definitely pack some for lunch the next day! That's what I did so my toddler could eat it again for lunch!
