Easy Taco Zucchini Boats

One thing I really like about the summer is a good Farmer's Market. With the new move, the husband and I found a GREAT Farmers Market to check out. This past weekend, we strolled our way to find a local coffee roaster and fresh fruits and veggies galore.

My purchases included fresh basil, cilantro, blueberries, corn and zucchini! I decided to try the yellow variety versus the typical green. I'm not sure if there is much of a difference but I did like the color. A few nights ago we had made taco salad and I had some leftover meat mixture that needed to be used. I thought what a great way to use these beautiful zucchini and fill them up with taco beef and cheese! I had some leftover Velveeta cheese that I had used for a potluck at work. It was a nice addition to have a creamy cheese sauce on top.

Recipe: Easy Taco Zucchini Boats

2 medium zucchini, sliced in half lengthways
2 cup of taco meat (see previous post here to get the recipe)
1 cup Velveeta
3/4 cup milk
Salsa and Cilantro for garnishing

Preheat the oven 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Wash and dry zucchini. Slice in half, lengthways. Using a spoon, carefully scoop out the inside of the zucchini to make a trench. Spray the skin side of the zucchini with non-stick cooking spray and lay skin side on the foil.

Take your meat mixture and even distribute it upon the 4 boats.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the zucchini is cooked through.

Remove from oven and top with cheese sauce, salsa and cilantro.

Serve and enjoy!
