Chili-fied Zucchini Boats (or Canoes)
Source: Family Fun Magazine or here for the internet version
Yield: 4 servings
Prep: 1 hour total
4 medium zucchini (about a 1/2 lb each, I used 5 small)
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Salsa, shredded mexican cheese blend, or other chili toppings for serving
1. Heath the oven to 375. Trim off and discard the ends of each zucchini, then halve them lengthwise. Trim a thin slice from the curved side of each portion so that they sit flat. Scoop out and discard the center flesh of each zucchini to form a boat.
2. In a medium bowl, stir the ground turkey, corn, onion, egg, garlic, chili powder, and salt together until well blended. Evenly distribute the mixture among the zucchini halves, packing it in and mounding it slightly.
3. Arrange the boats on a baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve with salsa, cheese or your family’s favorite chili toppings.
