Zucchini Boats

The thing I love about Zucchini is that it’s a cheap vegetable! The other night Craig and I were craving Mexican so I made these up with some leftover ingredients! Its basically like an enchilada without the shell! A great way to hide a veggie if you don't like them! 

1 lb Ground Turkey (or beef) 
1 can chopped green chilis (jalapeños if you want to get spicy!) 
1 Taco seasoning 
1/2 cup chopped onion 
4 Zucchini 
Garlic powder 
Shredded Cheese 
Hot Sauce 

1. Pre-heat oven to 375
2. Cut your Zucchini in half! Spoon out the center so you can fill with the meat! I usually use a spoon and leave a little zucchini left so its not just skins! 
3. In a fry pan, cook up meat! Add a dash of salt, pepper, onion, and garlic powder to meat while cooking
4. Add in taco seasoning when ready along with green chili and mix together (use jalapeños if you want to get spicy!) 
4. Fill each Zucchini with the meat mixture and top with cheese 
5. Place in oven for 25 min 
6. Add hot sauce if you wish or even some enchilada sauce! and enjoy :) 

Top with Guac, Salsa, or any other hispanic dish toppings!
