Cook: 10 minutes
Cool: 5 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes

Ingredients

2 medium-large zucchini (about 10 oz. each)
8 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 cup frozen sweet corn kernels
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup chopped scallions
Optional toppings: light sour cream, salsa, sliced black olives, chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Preheat oven to broil. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Slice off and discard stem ends of zucchini. Pierce zucchini several times with a fork.
Place on a microwave-safe
plate, and microwave for 3 minutes.

Flip zucchini and microwave for 3 more minutes, or until softened. Pat dry. Let cool, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add beef, and sprinkle with garlic
powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add 1/4 tsp. cumin and 1/4 tsp. chili powder.

Cook and crumble for about 4
minutes. Add corn. Cook and stir until corn has thawed and beef is fully cooked, about 1 minute.

Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Gently scoop out and discard the inside flesh (or save for another time), leaving about
1/4 inch inside the skin. Thoroughly pat dry. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. cumin and 1/4 tsp. chili powder.

Place hollow zucchini halves on the baking sheet. Fill with beef mixture, and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake until entire dish is hot and cheese has melted, about 1 minute.

Top with tomato and scallions.
