Calabazitas con queso

My Post-17

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:


  1. In a big pot, drizzle some olive oil because you are going to saute your zucchinis in that.  bring to high heat!
  2. Cut the zucchini into quarters and throw them into the pot and saute away! Do this for about a minute!
  3. 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..
  4. 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..
  5. You want to lower the heat to medium and leave it for 20-30 minutes stirring occationally.
  6. Remove from heat and add cheese! Stir well!
  7. 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!
