We absolutely love burritos in this house! So having been craving burritos lately, I decided to take a spin on a traditional Mexican food and make a low carb version. These burrito style Mexican zucchini boats are really satisfying! They truly hit the spot for my entire family. Even my 10 month old thoroughly enjoyed these. A very messy, deconstructed version of course!
To hollow out your zucchini boats, carefully dig out the center flesh with a metal spoon or melon baller. Grip the edges somewhat firmly so you have more control and don’t poke right through your zucchini. (I learned that the hard way, so you’re welcome :)) Then lay out all your hollowed zucchini boats and prepare your stuffing!
You can experiment with tons of different ingredients for the stuffing. I used black beans, quinoa and veggies, but don’t limit yourself there. Feel free to swap out different kinds of beans and veggies to create your own version. These would also taste great with brown rice or barley.
I topped my Mexican zucchini boats with 3 minute guac, diced tomatoes, and jalapeno.
