I love making nachos, and these zucchini nachos are the perfect way to make a lighter and healthier version. By using zucchini as chips, or at least for half of them, it’s an excellent way to get more veggies in, while still loading on all the toppings.
The zucchini holds up great, and with a quick grill, they will be ready to top with your favorite toppings. Hello, zucchini nachos!
