Tangy, spicy salsa verde blooms when cooked, which is why it’s often used in enchiladas. Here, it coats lightly-cooked veggie chunks for a satisfying zucchini taco filling with a hint of heat.

For the salsa verde, you could make your own or use your favorite store-bought version. Feel free to swap in other squashes for the zucchini if you prefer.
