These low carb grilled zucchini boats are stuffed with beef, salsa, and cheese! Yes really – all you need is just four ingredients to impress your guests next time you’re grilling!
I was recently stocking up on salsa in Walmart and noticed the HERDEZ® range of salsas.
They are available in mild, medium and hot, and only contain five ingredients: tomatoes, onions, serrano peppers, salt and cilantro! These fresh authentic flavors make these salsas perfect for enjoying with family and friends, but at only 1g net carbs per serving of two tablespoons – ideal for my diet!
I purchased the HERDEZ® Salsa Casera in both mild and medium. I like things spicy but many of my family members do not! While I was in Walmart I also bought some fresh zucchini and some ground beef. I had a plan to use this salsa for something REALLY good!
While the grill is heating up, make the stuffing for the zucchini. Add olive oil and lean ground beef to a large saute pan. I think beef is one of my favorite meats – it can be used for so many dishes and it always tastes so good! Get recipe inspiration and beef nutrition information at “Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner“.
After the meat has browned, add a cup of the salsa. As a low-carber, one of the benefits of using salsa in cooking is that I rarely need to add any other seasonings, making it quick and simple. I use salsa in my Quick Cook Bacon Jam which is fantastic! Let the sauce reduce down until hardly any liquid is left – about 15-20 minutes.
While this is cooking, prepare the zucchini by cutting them in half lengthways, trimming the stalk, and scooping out the seeds with a spoon.
Place them cut-side-down on the hot grill, and cook for ten minutes.
Flip them over and load them up with beef/salsa mixture and then finally sprinkle some cheese (I use a Mexican blend) over the top.
Return them to the grill for around ten minutes (with the lid closed) or until the cheese has melted.
The delicious HERDEZ® Salsa Casera added such great flavor to these zucchini boats, and they will definitely be a hit at your next outdoor family party!
