South of the Border Zucchini Bake Recipe


Looking for a new way to use up that ubiquitous zucchini? South of the Border Zucchini Bake is not only quick and easy to prepare, it takes advantage of both zucchini and tomatoes from your garden. If you happen to have some leftover rice, this dish can be put together in about 10 minutes; if not, fresh rice can be cooked in 20 minutes either on the stove, or in the rice cooker. While the rice is cooking, you can brown the ground beef with the onions and add the remaining ingredients.

Zucchini is best when it is picked while still small – no longer than about 8 inches. It’s more tender that way, and has less seeds. Larger zucchini 10-12” is better for stuffing, as in Greek Stuffed Zucchini or Mary O’Hara’s Minnesota Zucchini Boats.

The flavors in this casserole (or “hot dish” if you’re from the Midwest) are wonderful, and this dish is sure to become a family favorite.
