  • Well I just made these and I suggest 375 for temperature and almost 40 minutes!!!!(and no I did not have super large or thick zucchini).

  • I love this amazing stuffed zucchini. The best thing about this zucchini recipe is that it takes no time to make. Thanks for sharing this recipe with all of us. Even i have a special zucchini recipe as well. Check out the recipe here:

  • these came out soo good!!!!
    i cut everything in half since was just for me and still have enough for two people. i also topped them with just a bit sour cream put it over the top.

  • I’m a little curious why the ends were left on.. can someone tell me if zucchini gets soft easily? I prefer stuffed veggies to be on the tender side.

  • Yum! I would take the leftover mix minus the rice, and make an egg scramble with it and top with cheese. Mouth is watering just thinking about it lol

  • This looks like a great channel. I had a heart attack at age 52 this year, and I’m a big dumb guy who doesn’t know how to cook. Now I’m in a big hurry to learn healthy cooking. Glad I found this channel <3

  • OMG Dani. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed these Zucchini taco boats. They were absolutely beyond incredible. Thank you for the inspiring recipe. I look forward to eating these all week ��

  • Made these for dinner last night and they were delicious! I made a change by adding some Italian sausage with the beef and quinoa instead of the cauliflower rice because it’s what I had on hand. Will definitely make them again.

  • Cool idea. I have found that the zucchini is not done preparing them like this. I always precook my zucchini for about 20 minutes before stuffing them. Otherwise by the time the zucchini gets done the meat mixture is overcooked. Love the taco idea though. Definitely will be trying your recipe.

  • Ha! I started making the zucchini boats after I saw the older video. I adore them. My family has had enough tho. Will try this to change it up!

  • Made this last night for dinner and I must say it was delicious. It’s my fiance’s favorite dish now!!:-) We had the leftovers for lunch today and to my surprise, it was even better than the night before.. Since I’m not a fan of green peppers, I replaced it with mushrooms. Thanks for posting such easy and healthy recipes; I can’t wait to try something new soon!!:-)
