INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ medium onion, diced

1 can black beans, rinsed

½ c. cheese

1 c. enchilada sauce

1 can corn, drained

1 teaspoon cumin

How to make Mexican Zucchini Boats

Step 1: After trimming the stem ends of the zucchini, cut them in half, lengthwise. Scoop the flesh out of the zucchini using a spoon, then chop the flesh into small, even pieces using a knife. Set aside.

Step 2: In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped onion to the pan and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until clear. Add the minced garlic along with the zucchini flesh and continue to cook for additional 5 minutes.

Step 3: Stir in the black beans, corn, enchilada sauce, salt, and cumin until well blended. Set aside.

Step 4: Onto a baking sheet, place the zucchini shells. Evenly divide the black bean mixture between the shells and sprinkle each with cheese.

Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees F or until the cheese has slightly browned and melted.

Step 6: Remove from the oven when done and serve the Mexican Zucchini Boats immediately. Enjoy!

TO STORE AND REHEAT:

Place the zucchini boat in an airtight container and store it in the fridge for up to 3 days. When ready to reheat, place the boats on a baking sheet and pop in the oven or reheat in the microwave.
