Easy and unique dinner idea!  I’m adjusting the ingredients for a 4 serving portion (I only made 3 this time around).  You can also get creative with the filler.  I did this recipe with some Mexican flair, but you can change it up to whatever your tastebuds may be craving.  Italian perhaps- Ground meat, tomato sauce,  bread crumbs, and Mozzarealla/Parmesan?!?
