zucchini topped with spicy ground beef

zucchini with spicy ground beefThe original recipe was for zucchini boats, with the center of the zucchini scooped out to hold the ground beef. However, I couldn’t see the point in wasting a lot of good zucchini flesh, so I simply scooped out the seeds, which were small and did not go deep.

For the ground beef I used 93% and seasoned it with cumin and chili con carne seasoning. I added salsa and shredded cheddar cheese. I cooked the zucchini in the toaster oven on the convection setting. I should have grilled them. Maybe next time.

It was a good dinner and we got our veggies for the day.
