It's a variation on my go-to "kitchen sink" recipe using italian sausage, parmesan and bread crumbs and can be baked in the oven or on the grill in the summer! This uses mexican chorizo for a smoky and spicy kick! —Sharon Neri
2 stuffed halves
7" or larger zucchini
crumbled, cooked mexican chorizo
shredded monterey jack cheese
ground black pepper
In This Recipe
Slice zucchini lengthwise in half. Scoop out seeds with spoon, leaving about 1/4-1/2 inch of flesh. Turn onto paper towels, cut side down while preparing filling.
Mix remaining ingredients except oil in a medium size bowl.
Stuff into zucchini firmly. Place on greased (or foil-lined) baking sheet. Drizzle with oil.
Bake at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes or until stuffing is golden and zucchini has softened slightly (use a toothpick to pierce squash-timing depends on size of squash). Or bake on closed grill over indirect heat for same amount of time.
