How to Make Southwest Zucchini Boats

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; cut a thin slice from the bottom of
    each with a sharp knife to allow zucchini to sit flat. Scoop out
    pulp, leaving 1/4-in. shells.
  2. Place shells in an ungreased 3-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and
    microwave on high for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set
    aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no
    longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat; stir in the salsa, bread
    crumbs, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup
    cheese. Spoon into zucchini shells.
  4. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Microwave 3-4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and
    zucchini are tender. Serve with sour cream if desired.
