MONDAY MUNCHIES


--Easy Zucchini Boats-- 

Hola! 

Below is the recipe to my Monday Munchies Insta Post. The recipe was a bit lengthy to type out under the post and I didn't want a SUPER long caption. 

I love these boats! They are super easy to make, they are delicious and filling.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit 

Heat olive oil in a skillet. Place the onions and peppers in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add black beans, corn, brown rice and spices and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Add  salsa and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
