If you’re a regular reader of GHU, then you know how much we love zucchini noodles. However, we decided to put down the Zoodler and try a recipe with the zucchinis intact for once! This delicious dish tastes like a savory and spicy taco, but the zucchini boat replaces the tortilla. Low-carb, protein-filled, and kid-friendly. What more could you ask for in a family dinner?


  • 3 medium zucchinis
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups Mexican shredded cheese blend
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, cilantro
