Why Zucchini nachos? Well, we LOVE Zucchini. It is a pretty prolific producer each year (as long as you miss the squash bugs and squash vine borers). We always end up with too much to use it all, so much of it goes in the freezer.
Zucchini Nachos – the perfect alternative to starchy chips
You can never have too much zucchini since it can be substituted in to so many foods instead of starchy items. One of our favorite zucchini recipes is zucchini nachos. (If you like these, try out our zucchini lasagna, zucchini bread, and zucchini noodle casserole too!) If you haven’t already, you can also try growing zucchini on your own.
Here’s how to make the zucchini nachos:
2 Zucchini’s sliced into chips
1/2 lb Ground Beef
1 tsp Garlic
1 tsp Oregano
1 small can of Black Olives
(and any of your other favorite nacho toppings)
1) Take your zucchini chips and either place on a grill or put in a large pan (with a little oil) on the stove to heat. Cook them until they are soft.
2) In a small fry pan, cook your ground beef with the garlic and oregano on medium heat until thoroughly cooked.
3) Drain ground beef and rinse.
4) Layer Zucchini chips on a plate, top with ground beef, cheese, black olives and sour cream (or whatever your favorite toppings are).
These zucchini nachos are great fresh or reheated. We always make enough for a few servings since they reheat well. We use these as both appetizers for when we have guests over as well as for a main lunch or dinner course for ourselves. They really are a versatile dish, which makes them that much better!
