RECIPES: Taco Stuffed Zucchini “Boats”

A fun way to incorporate a vegetable into a meal. Simple to make and great for kids who are picky eaters when it comes to veggies.  Definitely a new spin on tacos!  I cant wait to experiment and see what other creations can be done with zucchini boats!

1.  Using a small spoon or melon baller, hollow out the center of the zucchini halves, leaving 1/4-inch thick shell on each half.  Drop zucchini halves in boiling water and cook 1 minute. Remove from water.
