"I wanted to add that I used red onion for color and I also omitted the cheddar cheese- that dumps 115 calories and 9g of fat per serving!! Also, using fresh corn instead of canned reduces the sodium by leaps and bounds!!"

"I made this last night as a way for my 5 year old to try a new veggie- zucchini. She tried it and ate it! I even packaged up the leftovers for my lunch today! Yum!"
