RSVP Collection No. 24 - Chili Beef Stuffed Zucchini

Chili Beef Stuffed Zucchini

4 Zucchini (about 2 lbs.) halved lengthwise and seeded
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3/4 lb. ground beef
1 t. ground cumin
salt and pepper
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 c. jarred pickled jalapeno chiles,finely chopped
1-8 oz. bag mexican-style shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange the zucchini cut side up in a 9" x 13" baking dish. Add 1/2 c. water to the dish, cover with foil and  bake until the zucchini begins to soften, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the beef and cumin and cook, breaking the meat up, until just browned, about 4 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomatoes and pickled jalapenos. Uncover the baking dish, pour off the water and season the zucchini with salt. Fill with the beef mixture and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Serves 4.
