RECIPE} Zucchini Taco Boats!

I always love to try a new recipe, but it's not so much fun if you idon'thave a test group to try it on, right??

When my family came into town this week, I decided it was the perfect audience and time to try out this clean, Zucchini Taco Boat recipe! 

One of my favorite things, is to find a recipe that can be modified to follow the guidelines and nutrition plan for whichever Beachbody program I'm following, such as 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, or The Master's Hammer and Chisel. 

This recipe was SUPER simple and a total hit! My parents loved it and even my 16 month old daughter ate 3 zucchini halves! I'm definitely going to be adding these to my list to make again!


5 medium zucchini
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 medium onion, diced
1 Cup diced sweet peppers, diced (red, yellow, orange, use what you have)
*Homemade Taco Seasoning (recipe found here)
1 cup salsa
1 1/2 cups Mexican shredded cheese blend
optional toppings: Greek Yogurt, sour cream, cilantro


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Wash and scoop out the insides of the zucchini with a spoon or melon scooper and chop them and place into pan.

Place the scooped out zucchini shells into a 9 by 13 baking dish (depending on the size of the zucchini, you may need an extra dish)

Toss scopped zucchini, peppers and onions  into a pan, lightly sautéing then add ground turkey

Once the turkey is browned, add the seasonings, salsa and 1 cup of cheese

Continue to cook until cheese is melted

Fill zucchini with this mixture then top with remaining cheese.

Cover with foil and bake 20-25 minutes or until zucchini is tender.

Enjoy with optional toppings!

*Pretty Fit Mom TIP: I make my taco seasoning in bulk, and save it in an old glass salsa jar, so that I'm able to use it quickly and easily!
