Zucchini Boats- 21 Day Fix

I had a craving for tacos so I made this bad boy and damn was it delicious!  I did not want the carbs of the tortilla or hard shell so instead I used a zucchini!



Southwestern Spice Mix:
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne (if wanted)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp sea salt

Make ground turkey in a pan and when it is cooked, add as much of the spice mixture that you want. Set aside.

Cut the Zucchini lengthwise and hollow out the middle using a teaspoon. Set the boats aside.

Chop up the zucchini insides, saute in a pan with black beans (rinsed and dried), quinoa (already cooked), and corn (already cooked). Mix in some chopped tomatoes.  I added salt and pepper at this point.

Stuff the zucchini boats with the cooked mix and meat.  Cook in oven for about 15 minutes at 350 and put in the broiler for additional few minutes.   You can top with a dab of greek yogurt and a little shredded cheese if you wish!

For 21 day fixers: measure out a container of meat for 1 red, 1 yellow container which is the beans/quinoa/corn mix.  It is also 1 green for the zucchini!  ENJOY!
