This was WONDERFUL. The jalapenos gave it a nice spicy flavor and it was really beautiful. There were many different flavors. I would serve this at a dinner party because the presentation was great and they were very tasty. Thanks, I will cook this many times I'm sure.

The flavors were great. Everyone commented on how great the zucchini was. I think that mine must be much smaller than yours because I filled 3 and still had filling left over. I will cook some more again tomorrow to finish off the filling. Thanks for posting, this one is a real keeper.

I used 5 small zucchini to use up the filling and tried the cheddar. They were wonderful, even my 6yr. old ate one and she hates zucchini! If time is ever an issue, you can replace the tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and chili with fresh salsa from the deli section. Next time I'll try the gouda!
