Zuchinni Beef & Bean Medley/Weekly Menu

Hi everyone! I am so sorry, but I am definitely late with my new weekly menu and recipe. It’s been an overwhelming week; I even had to add an extra yoga class for some zen time! Luckily, I have great friends and a spouse here that makes my stressful weeks seem like a birthday party! I don’t want to complain, because I know a lot of people have way more stress than me, but I think we all deserve some stress/vent time!

I hope you enjoy this week’s menu:

  • Monday: Fiesta Bowl
  • Tuesday: Pinto Beans Tacos
  • Wednesday: Crust-less Crockpot Pizza
  • Thursday: Rosemary Chicken Salad
  • Friday: Spicy Crockpot Soup
  • Saturday: Zuchinni Beef &Bean Medley
  • Sunday: Zoodle Stir Fry

So, as you can see, I have a couple of crockpot meals listed in my menu. In the summer I love crockpot meals. They don’t heat up your house, and they are super easy so you can enjoy the great outdoors. Keep an eye out, because I will have a few posts about breakfast/crockpot meal prep to give you even more time to enjoy the summer!

Now for my Zucchini Beef & Bean Medley:


  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 can of black beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large zucchini in quarter squares
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chopped (or 1 small can of green chiles if you don’t like spicy)
  • 1/4 small onion chopped
  • ground red pepper to taste
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Brown ground beef on medium high heat until cooked through.
  2. Chop zucchini into quarter squares and heat in pan with lid for 5 mins with olive oil.
  3. Add 1/2 can of black beans to cooked brown beef, heat for 2 mins.
  4. Add diced tomatoes to the bean & beef mixture, heat for another 2 mins.
  5. Add the chopped veggies to bean & beef mixture, except for zucchini, and heat for 2 mins.
  6. Add ground red pepper & salt & pepper to your meat mixture (I recommend about 1/2 tsp of red pepper if using jalapenos).
  7. Add zucchini to the meat mixture, and heat on medium-high heat for 5 mins.
  8. Serve immediately
