2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep your protein

  • Ground meat (including plant based): Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; cut any large pieces into 1-inch chunks.


Prep the zucchini and onion; start the Tex-Mex skillet

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups]; set aside ¼ cup [½ cup] for garnish.

In a large frying pan [large sauce pot] over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein, zucchini, Tex-Mex seasoning blend, and ¾ cup [1½ cups] onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and breaking up the ground meat if using, until your protein is lightly browned but not yet cooked through and the vegetables start to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the remaining garnishes; finish the Tex-Mex skillet

  • Cut the grape tomatoes in half.
  • Cut the lime into wedges. [Cut 1 lime into wedges; save the remaining lime for another use.]

To the pan [pot] with your protein, add the diced tomatoes, green chiles, and ½ cup [¾ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the Tex-Mex skillet to individual bowls and garnish with the grape tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, and remaining chopped onion. Serve with the lime wedges.
