1. bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. preheat oven to 400 degrees and place 1/4 cup salsa in the bottom of a large baking dish.

2. using a small spoon or melon baller, hollow out the center of the zucchini halves, leaving 1/4 inch thick shell on each half. chop the scooped out flesh of the zucchini in small pieces and set aside 3/4 cup to add to the taco filling, discarding the rest or save to use in another recipe. drop zucchini halves in boiling water and cook 1 minute, then remove.

3. brown ground buffalo/chicken in a large skillet, breaking it up while it cooks. when no longer pink, add the spices and mix well. add the onion, bell pepper, reserved zucchini, tomato sauce, and water. stir and cover, simmer on low for about 20 minutes.

4. using a spoon, fill the hollow zucchini boats, dividing the taco meat equally, and press in firm. cover with foil and bake 35 minutes until zucchini is cooked thoroughly. Top with scallions and Nutritional yeast, and serve with salsa on the side.
