Calabacitas! Sort Of.
Calabacitas is both the general plural Spanish noun for zucchini and also the name of the dish when prepared in the following manner. Cafe Drake HRV felt wacky and decided to create calabacitas with zucchini's first cousin - yellow crookneck squash. Prepare in the same way with zucchini or patty pan squash if you wish.

|A variation we especially enjoy is as simple as replacing pickled jalapenos with 1 canned chipotle chili (along with a teaspoon or two of the adobo sauce); prepare recipe exactly as above.|
