These Vegan Calabasitas are so yummy and easy to make! They’re great as the star of a meal or make for a good side dish. Either way they taste is amazing.


  • 2 Medium Calabasitas, thinly sliced
  • 1 Can of Corn (15.25 oz)
  • 1 Medium Tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 2 Tbs oil


  1. Slice, chop and dice the calabasitas, tomato and onion.
  2. Heat a large pan on the stove at medium-high heat and add oil.
  3. When the pan is hot enough, toss in the calabasitas, tomato and onion, and stir to combine.
  4. Drain the juice from the can of corn, add in the pan, and stir everything together.
  5. Lower the heat to medium-low and add in the spices. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 10 minutes, until the calabasitas are soft. Be careful not to overcook them because they can get mushy.
  6. Once they are done remove the pan from the heat, also tilt the lid to release the steam this helps to stop the calabasitas from cooking.
  7. Can serve with some pinto beans and tortillas. Enjoy!


For a Vegetarian option you can add cheese to the pan while cooking.
