All you need is just four ingredients to impress your guests next time you’re grilling! These stuffed zucchini are SO easy to make!
HERDEZ® 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 low carbers!
While the grill is heating up, make the stuffing for the zucchini. Add olive oil and lean ground beef to a large sauté pan. I think beef is one of my favorite meats – it can be used for so many dishes and it always tastes so good!
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!
