Tex Mex Stuffed Zucchini With Avocado Salsa

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
1/2
tbsp Olive oil
1/4
cup Onion, diced
1/2
tbsp Garlic, minced
1/2
lb 93% Lean Ground turkey
1
tsp Cumin powder
1/2
tsp Smoked paprika, plus additional for sprinkling on zucchini
1/2
tsp Chili powder
1/4
cup + 2 Tbsp Salsa of choice
Salt/pepper to taste
2
large Zucchinis
1/4
cup Reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated
FOR THE AVOCADO SALSA:
1
Large avocado, chopped
1/2
cup Red onion, diced
1/4
cup Cilantro, roughly chopped
2
tsp White wine vinegar
Salt/pepper to taste
Directions
1.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
2.
Heat the olive oil up in a large pan on medium/high heat. Add In the diced onion and garlic and cook until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.
3.
Reduce the heat to medium and add in the ground turkey. Cook until golden brown, and no longer pink inside, draining an excess fat. 4. Once the turkey is cooked, mix in the cumin, paprika, chili powder, salsa and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
4.
Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a small spoon, to create a “boat.” Sprinkle each boat with salt, pepper and a pinch of smoked paprika. Then, fill each boat with the ground turkey mixture and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
5.
Sprinkle the cheese onto the boats and bake until the zucchini is fork tender, about 10 – 12 minutes.
6.
While the zucchini cooks, combine the diced avocado, red onion, cilantro and white wine vinegar in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
7.
Serve the zucchini boats right out of the oven, topped with the avocado salsa.
