Chef John's Taco-Stuffed Zucchini Boats
Zucchini is not very exciting, interesting, or fun to eat, which is basically the opposite of a taco. But what we're going to do here is use the same filling used to make tacos to stuff zucchini and turn something that's generally unremarkable into something that is incredibly remarkable. This isn't some kind of low-carb substitute gimmick--these really were amazing. Serve topped with diced tomato, green onions, sour cream, and cilantro, or any toppings you prefer.
You can substitute any kind of pepper you like for the jalapeno or cook this with no pepper. Feel free to add corn, beans, or both to the taco meat mixture.
If you are concerned with salt content, you can rinse the zucchini under cold water before drying, but I don't, since the squash is bland and needs to be well seasoned.
You can cook these for less time if you prefer a firmer zucchini texture.
