3-4 medium zucchini, halved and hollowed out
packet (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
oz Monterey jack cheese, cubed
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large skillet, add ground beef and olive oil over medium heat. Cook, breaking up beef as it browns, until cooked through.
Add 1/4 cup water to the beef along with taco seasoning. Stir together well. Then add beans, corn, red onion, and salsa. Cook for 1-2 minutes until well combined and then remove from heat.
Wash zucchini well and cut in half longwise. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out center of each zucchini. Add a few small cubes of cheese to the bottom of each zucchini.
Spoon beef mixture into each zucchini. Feel free to pile it high in each zucchini. Top each half with more cheese cubes.
Bake zucchini boats for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and zucchini are tender. It’s okay if they still have some bite to them.
