Yummy Black Bean & Zucchini Dish!!

I got this recipe from here and it turned out sooo good - but the nutrition information came out slightly different from what's on their website.  My boyfriend commented that he 'couldn't really taste the zucchini' - which he didn't mind since he's not a big veggie person - but I could totally taste the zucchini.  This is a great side dish.  It's got a little heat to it so tone it down if you don't like spice.  Not only is this dish tasty, it's got fiber, protein, and it's low in calories!! 

1 can black beans (drained & rinsed thoroughly)
2 med Zucchini - diced.
2tbsp salsa (I used Great Value Black Bean & Corn Salsa)
salt & pepper
few slices of onion - diced
1tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp curry powder
non stick cooking spray
Cook onion (med heat) until softened.  Add in Zucchini & salt & pepper (to taste).  Cook that for a few minutes, and then add in the remaining spices.  Stir in the beans & salsa.  Cook for a few more minutes over reduced heat.  Serve hot.  Makes 4 servings.
