All over Pinterest I've seen all sorts of stuffed zucchini recipes. Apparently zucchini is fairly versatile. I never would have thought it, but it's on the internet so it must be true! Right?! I kid. But with this recipe, there is no kidding. Zucchini is versatile and and can become a vessel to a fairly large amount of dishes.
If you've been reading Everyday Made Fresh long, you would have already been aware, we eat a lot of Mexican inspired dishes, so it's no surprise that I took this zucchini dish south of the border for taco stuffed zucchini.
Using our favorite Better then the Packet! Homemade Taco Seasoning I seasoned our ground beef up and went for it. Surprisingly this was delicious, and a wonderful low carb way to enjoy tacos.
