Grilled Zucchini Taco Boats

#Ad These Grilled Zucchini Taco Boats were a hit with everyone in my family. They are a great low carb option, easy to make, and won’t heat up the house while they cook. I used Reynolds Wrap® 100% Recycled Foil from @ReynoldsBrands to grill these Zucchini Taco Boats. I love that this foil is recycled, is food safe, and is the same strength and quality as Reynolds Wrap® Everyday Foil. The foil traps in the steam and juices, and keeps the “boats” from drying out, helping lock in the flavor.Reynolds Wrap® now has a new box that is easier to open and comes with a tab that keeps the box fully closed when you store it. The new boxes are also color-coded to make it easier to find the product in the aisle – look for the green color for Reynolds Wrap® 100% Recycled Foil. #ReynoldsPartner

 

Grilled Zucchini Taco Boat Packets

10 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
@ReynoldsBrands Reynolds Wrap® 100% Recycled Foil
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped fine
1/4 jalapeño pepper, chopped fine
1/4 cup water

Seasoning:

1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Pinch crushed red pepper
1 cup shredded cheese (more if desired)

Topping options:

Salsa
Avocado, chopped
Cilantro, chopped
Tomatoes, diced
Sour cream
1. Heat grill to medium heat.
2. Using a spoon, scrape out the seeds of the zucchini making a “boat” out of them. Set them aside.
3. Brown ground beef in a large skillet until no longer pink. Add seasoning, onion, pepper, and water and stir to combine. Cover with Reynolds Wrap® 100% Recycled Foil and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Lay out 5 pieces of Reynolds Wrap® 100% Recycled Foil approximately 16”, one piece for each zucchini (2 halves). Stack the foil and work from the top, one at a time. Place two zucchini halves in the center on each piece of foil.  Fill the zucchini “boat” with the taco mixture, 2-3 tbsp each.  Then wrap each in the foil, like a present. Fold at the top leaving space for the heat to circulate. Then, tightly seal the ends by double folding. Repeat until all of the zucchini is wrapped.  If your zucchinis are large, you may need to wrap one in each piece of foil.
5. Place each foil packet on the grill. Cook for 15-20 mins or until boats are tender, be sure not to over cook. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.  You can have a little bit of fun and serve as a taco bar and allow each person to garnish as desired!  Or carefully open foil and fold open.  Then top with the desired amount of cheese.  Allow the cheese to melt, it took about 3 mins. Garnish and serve on a platter.  Enjoy!
