Zucchini Taco Rolls

The versatility of zucchini is pretty surprising! I used to think it was just something you'd chop up for roasted veggies. When I was feeling adventurous, I'd trying stuffing a few zucchini. But that was as far as I'd take it. But nowadays, there are tons of other, fun ways to use zucchini, like making zoodles. Another clever way to use zucchini is to make these tasty Zucchini Taco Rolls!
