While working for a small, private elementary school Rene developed this recipe for the young vegetarians. It was a hit! The kids loved to eat their veggies when prepared in this way.

PreparationFor salsa verde:
- Simmer tomatillos and jalapeno in water for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving 25% of the water and place in blender

- Sauté zucchini, corn and onion until onions are translucent and zucchini is tender. Remove from heat and cool
- Add diced jalapeno, cumin, coriander and salt.
- Make sure this mixture is completely cool before adding goat cheese and cheddar cheese.
- While waiting for the vegetables to cool, fry the corn tortillas in an inch or two of oil. Using tongs, just a few seconds on each side.
