Zucchini Fundido -- A spicy appetizer or party dish!

Zucchini Fundido
Submitted by Natalie Lochwin

Today I look at a quick and easy -- and absolutely delicious -- dish that works as a great appetizer or party plate!

First take 1 1/2 cups of thinly sliced  zucchini  and 1/2 an egg sized thinly sliced onion and salt them generously to draw out their water.

Add all to a cast iron pan and cook down in 1 tablespoon of olive oil for at least 20-30 minutes over low heat until nicely carmelized and soft.

Add 5-6 dashes of hot sauce (I used tabasco) and taste and then season more with hot sauce or salt accordingly if desired.

Grate  mozzarella and Monterrey Jack  or aged white cheddar very generously over the zucchini/onion mix and place the cast iron pan into an oven preheated to broil. Broil until the chess is golden and bubbling.

Remove (watch out, pan will be very hot) and let sit a few minutes.

Serve with tortilla chips, or soft tortilla for scooping! Goes perfectly with ice cold sodas or beer and also goes well with any delicious tequila and lime drink.
