Place zucchini and bell pepper in large storage bag. Drizzle with canola oil; toss to coat. Sprinkle some of spice rub in bag; toss to coat. Coat chicken with remaining spice rub.

Place chicken and vegetables on barbecue. Grill until veggies are tended and browned and chicken is cooked through, turning occasionally.

Remove from heat and cut chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch thick strips. Cut zucchini crosswise into 3/4 inch strips. Place chicken and veggies in large bowl; toss to integrate.

Serve with tortillas and chipotle cream.

Though not as traditional, this can also be served with flour tortillas if corn do not suit you. Make sure to use smoked paprika, not regular paprika. It adds significant depth to the flavors. [I posted this recipe.]
