Meal Prep with Chicken, Zucchini, Peppers, and more!

I have a bunch of go-to's when it comes to meal prepping, but I wanted to try something different this week.

I found this "Tex Mex Chicken and Zucchini" recipe on Pinterest (side note: what did we do before we had this magical app for cooking/baking?) and it's got a ton of good stuff in it. I'm so slow at prepping (you with me?) so it took me what felt like 3 hours to do, but basically I chopped up zucchini (the recipe calls for 2 but they had ginormous ones at the Trader Joe's at Bayshore Center so I just used one), tomatoes (so much better than getting the canned stuff that a lot of times has hidden sugar), peppers (it only called for two but I couldn't pick so I went with yellow, orange, AND red), and onion (calls for 1 whole but I did half). I cheated on the corn (used frozen kind) and the black beans (I just rinsed off a can of organic ones) though.

Then I cooked up the onions, garlic, and peppers on one side of the skillet, and then added the chicken with spices (for the recipe in general, I didn't have taco seasoning so I just used cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper). Then I threw in the corn, black beans, tomatoes, and zucchini.

Truthfully, I haven't eaten it yet (I have it ready for my lunch today) .... BUT DANG, LOOK HOW PRETTY ALL THOSE COLORS ARE!!!

You can also add cheese (I found some dairy-free kind at TJ's that I'm going to put on mine because #lactoseintollerantcity), cilantro, and green onion when serving.
