In an attempt to try and fit in some more "healthy" meals, I was looking around the Net when I came across zucchini boats. None of the ones quite fit what I wanted,so I took some stuff from each and came up with my own version. Cooked them on the Egg at 375 for about 30 minutes.

Served up with some couscous and a salad.

Seemd healthy enough and it packed a lot of flavor. Really enjoyed it and I could see us making this again, amybe even changing up the ingredients to match other cuisines.

I see that you did not put a cherry-jalapeno glaze on them... :wink: :lol:

That's a good idea. When I grill zucchini it's just as slabs or coins and this would be a nice change of pace.

that's a great idea! I like that the stuffing isn't a bunch of wet bread and it sounds really tasty. I will have to give that idea a try in the near future.

salt, pepper, our tex-mex spice blend, and some extra chilli and cayenne and I think I added some ancho. you need to taste the meat mixture and adjust as you see fit. I really don't have any quantities beyond the basics I mentioned on my blog as i was adjusting and not really paying attention.
