Zucchini Taco Boats | Whole 30
Taco Tuesday has a new meaning when you’re on the Whole 30. What I mean by that is, it’s not a thing UNLESS you can figure out a way to hold precious taco meat cargo in a vessel that has no grains and only compliant ingredients. That way is through are zucchini taco boats . . .
These easy zucchini taco boats make it easy to bring back taco Tuesday or taco any day when you’re kicking ass on your Whole 30 journey.

In the meantime, heat oil in a pan and add onions and pepper and saute until onions are translucent. Add ground beef and taco seasoning and saute until meat is cooked through
Once zucchini boats are cooled down, take a spoon and scrape out the flesh and seeds of each zucchini half and save the the flesh
Chop the insides of the zucchini until it forms a chunky paste. Add it to a bowl with the ground beef mixture and half cup of almond flour.
