Recipe

These Fajita Stuffed Zucchini with Pinto Beans are so tasty - packed with beans, peppers, onions, and lots of cheese.

This weekend we had a number of events and I definitely took advantage and used it as an excuse to over-indulge. I definitely went overboard on the cheese, crackers, birthday cake, and wine. So now that it's Monday, I am looking to lighten things up and pack in as many veggies as possible. Since a girl can only eat so many salads, these Fajita Stuffed Zucchini with Pinto Beans are the perfect alternative. Stuffed with pinto beans, peppers, red onion, and lots of spices - you get all the flavor of fajitas packed into a perfect little zucchini boat.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the pinto beans, onion, peppers, and garlic. Cook until veggies are tender, about 6-8 minutes. Stir in the spices and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
  3. Meanwhile cut the zucchini in half and scoop out some of the center using a spoon or melon baller to create the “boat.” Place in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Fill the boats with the bean fajita mixture.
  5. Top each with cheese. Bake for 15-18 minutes until cheese is bubbling and zucchini is tender.
