Paleo Mexican Chop Chop

My husband loves Mexican food. Give him tacos or burritos and he is a happy guy. Since going Paleo, I have had to find Mexican substitutes for him. I developed a Mexican Chop Chop (I call it a chop chop because it requires plenty of chopping). So break out your cutting boards and a nice large skillet. Its fiesta time!!

Paleo Mexican Chop Chop

2 lbs ground beef (extra lean, and grass fed preferred)
olive oil
1 onion, diced or minced
2 chorizo sausages, chopped into small cubes (look for a healthier one, I found awesome ones at Whole Foods)
5 cloves of garlic, minced
4 medium zucchinis, shredded
1 14.5 oz can diced (or petite diced) tomatoes, juice drained
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
pinch of chili powder (more to taste)
sea salt, to taste

Heat large skillet over medium heat. Swirl in olive oil. Saute ground beef until nearly browned. Add onion, sausage and garlic. Saute until onion is translucent. Add zucchini, tomatoes, seasoning, and salt. Cook until zucchini softens. Serve and enjoy!
