Chicken Chorizo "No Potato" Hash and it is GOOD!!!!

Chicken Chorizo "No Potato" Hash
When I told my oldest son about the diet I had started he got on the Internet and found a DELICIOUS main dish at which he prepared when I visited last weekend and was it ever good!! 

This recipe is indeed a find if you like you food a little spicy and full of tender crisp veggies which results in a "dynamite dish"!! His version was so good neither of us would have ever thought of it as diet food. I thought I would devote a new section to really terrific "slow carb" dishes we try and like.

This one is REALLY good. It goes like this.


1/2 red onion diced
1/2 of a bunch of cilantro chopped
4 medium zucchini cut into 1/3 " cubes
1 red pepper cored, seeded, and chopped
8 oz. Mexican Chorizo sausage
2 C. cooked chicken shredded or chopped
1 T. oil
salt and black pepper to taste.

Heat a large skillet over medium -high heat. Brown the crumbled chorizo for 2-3 minutes until browned. Add the chicken and heat until it is warmed through. Remove the meat and set it aside.

Add the onions to the skillet and saute for 1 minute, add the zucchini and red pepper and an additional 1 T. of oil if needed. Saute for 2-3 minutes. The vegetables should be just cooked and NOT mushy. 

Salt and pepper and stir in the cilantro.  Serve pipping hot and you have a wonderful main dish.

If you don't care for cilantro try parsley instead or pass the cilantro on the side  if you have a mixed crowd as we do (Brian doesn't like a lot on his,)  Everyone can flavor the dish to suit themselves.   This dish will for sure be a "do again" at our house,  diet or not.
