Hi Everyone, I'd like to start by saying that we've created an improved version of KetoDiet Buddy where we've fine-tuned the calculations and have options for those who want to: lose weight, maintain weight or gain weight (muscles). We also added more tips on how to estimate your body fat percentage. And there is something else: KetoDiet Buddy will soon be included in the KetoDiet App!
Now back to my recipe... Just like pattypan squash, gem squash or round zucchini are perfect for stuffing! This one is made with Spanish chorizo, wild mushrooms and cheddar cheese. If you don't have Spanish chorizo, use salami or Mexican chorizo.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

Wondering what's the difference between Spanish and Mexican chorizo? Mexican chorizo is spicy ground meat sausage. It's mostly sold fresh and uncooked, loose or in a casing. You can use Mexican chorizo in this recipe if you like - just mix it with the ground meat and make more meatballs. Spanish chorizo is dried, cured sausage in a casing - like salami. Spanish chorizo is usually more expensive than Mexican chorizo and has a stronger taste (could be sweet, mild or spicy).
