Servings: 6 people
rimmed baking sheet
- 6 medium zucchini rinsed and dried
- salt and pepper
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup diced yellow onion
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 large garlic clove minced
- ¼ cup taco seasoning
- ½ cup water
- 14 ounce can black beans rinsed and drained
- 1 cup frozen corn
- ¾ cup shredded Mexican cheese
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
PREP THE ZUCCHINI:
Trim the ends off the zucchinis and cut them in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop and scrape the flesh out of the zucchini halves.
Place the zucchini halves on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle each with salt and pepper.
MAKE THE FILLING:
In a large skillet set over medium-high heat add olive oil, onion, and ground turkey. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until the meat is browned. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in taco seasoning, water, black beans, and corn. Cook for 2-5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
BAKE AND SERVE:
Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the zucchini is fork-tender and the cheese is golden.
Allow the boats to cool for 5 minutes. Then top with chopped cilantro and serve.
