  • 3 large zucchini
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup corn kernals
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 bell pepper cored and diced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno de-seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese cheddar, mozzarella, taco mix


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 9x13” casserole dish and set aside.

  • Slice each zucchini in half, lengthwise. Using a spoon or melon baller, hollow out the center of each zucchini. Place them skin side down in the casserole dish.

  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeno, and cook for 1-2 minutes or until soft.

  • Add the rice, corn and beans, salsa, and spices; cook for another 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat and mix in cilantro.

  • Spoon the filling inside of each zucchini until they are all full. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
