chorizo stuffed zucchini

This was our dinner last night. I found some chorizo at our local meat market, which is one of my favorite places because the meat they sell comes from locally raised, pastured animals. Chorizo is basically ground pork with some spices, including chili powder that gives it the red color. I decided to make stuffed zucchini with the chorizo. Here’s how I made it:

Chorizo Stuffed Zucchini

Ingredients
1 pound chorizo
1 onion
3-4 zucchini
1 ounce shredded raw cheddar cheese

Directions
Cut zucchini in half the long way. Scoop out the seeds, making a boat for the chorizo. Microwave the zucchini for about 4 minutes to make it a little softer. In the meantime, chop the onion and cook it with the chorizo. Scoop the chorizo mixture into the zucchini boats. I used three zucchini this time, but that was only because there were only three of us home for dinner last night. I could have used slightly smaller zucchini and made four. Plan on using about 1/4 to 1/3 pound of meat per person. Once the meat is in the boats, bake it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Shred some cheese if you like, and add it during the last five minutes of baking time.

We loved this! It was nice to get back to our California roots and enjoy chorizo, which is a delicious ingredient in lots of Mexican dishes.
