Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats – Food Wishes ctm magazine

There are so many great ways to trick your family into eating more vegetables, but one of my favorites is to add the word “taco” to the name of the recipe, which is exactly what we’re doing here with these easy, and delicious Taco-Stuffed Zucchini Boats. Sorry, tortillas, but you had a good run. Enjoy!

    Pepper or no pepper, you are after all the Houdini of your stuffed zucchini.

  • Jim Gellein on September 15, 2020

    Made this yesterday. It is so good. First taste it without cilantro and then with cilantro. What a nice addition! My friend told me to definitely add this dish to my rotation. Thank you!

    Zucchini is my favourite vegetable.
    I boil them in chicken stock until very tender and eat them whole.

  • Teacher Dude on September 15, 2020

    Basically this a variation on a very traditional Greek recipe known as zucchini 'papoutsi' (shoes)

  • Wooster001 on September 15, 2020

    Why do you talk the way you do? It’s so annoying.

  • IlDeimos on September 15, 2020

    "If you want to stretch your beef…"

    Lmao. Chef John is hilarious.

  • Robert charles Silvia on September 15, 2020

    Yes it is so good. Mas, flavor! Mild to spicy as you like. Thank you. Twice a month on week nights.home from work easy prep. Easy skills. Short cooking time. It might sneak into my nachos, I’m just saying.
    3 zucchini’s And a little left over.

    zucchini is amazingg

  • James Colley on September 16, 2020

    This is way better than the zucchini stuffed taco boats I've been making!

  • John Dough on September 17, 2020

    I've got a s_ton of these in my garden now. Thanks for a good idea to use them up.

  • Sandi H on September 21, 2020

    My husband absolutely loved this. This zucchini taco was very remarkable. I did have to make a substitution though. We used finely ground chanterelle mushrooms and finely diced green peppers and onions in place of the beef this time. It was delicious I can only imagine how amazing the beef would be.

    By the way, dogs and chickens both really love those scooped out boat innerds

  • Dana Dover on September 22, 2020

    I love your videos and always search for you when I'm looking for something new and easy to make. But your cadence in the voice over has changed. 😐

  • mi mi on September 23, 2020

    Lmao Chef I was horrified thinking you were on here pants-less, that was a good morning laugh. Thanks

  • J Hill on September 23, 2020

    How did I miss this one? We are always looking for new zucchini recipes. We have a garden, lots of zucchini.

  • Anton Boludo on September 23, 2020

  • 172kg on September 24, 2020

  • Isamy Ramos on September 24, 2020

    Thank you for just giving me an idea for tonight's dinner. I'm really looking forward to making these zucchini boats!

  • First Last on September 26, 2020

    Um… wouldn't Chorizo be simpler?

  • Stephen Bifani on January 23, 2021

    I lucked out, I guess, and my zucchini came out just firm enough to be a perfect vehicle for the taco filling. Just medium- firm with a soft crunch. Like the texture of a firm pickle or something. Seems like the fats from the taco mixture just seeped into the zucchini enough to enhance the usually mild flavor without making it mushy. I cut back on the spices a bit (Only a tiny bit of cayenne. Sorry, Chef John), because my wife has zero spicy tolerance. Also I didn't have any cumin so I substituted some turmeric. I don't know if that is proper, but it worked for us for sure. I did kind of up the sweetness in the sour cream drizzle. Put a touch of key lime juice, that bit of cayenne, a little pinch of sugar and thinned it out with some heavy cream. She loved it. This one is a keeper for sure. Big thanks!

    LOOKS GREAT ! I can't wait til my zucchinis are big enough to harvest.

  • Conway Cat on June 21, 2021

    I have always placed my prepped zucchini in a glass casserole dish, covered with plastic wrap and microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes, depending on size, and then press and drain the zucchini to remove much more water and gives a better texture. Then fill and bake as usual.

  • Ninecats Magee on September 3, 2021

    Hmmm. As the video opened I thought we were seeing Chef John with no britches on. And it immediately occurred to me — maybe a stuffed zuchinni isn't what I thought it was. Batta-BOOM!
