90K views · 8.8K reactions | MEXICAN MEALS FOR WEIGHT LOSS: CALABACITAS A LA MEXICANA 🇲🇽 I get self conscious to share easy recipes but as the holidays approach and schedules get tighter, I’ll be sharing easy, quick, balanced recipes to make life a little less hectic! Calabacitas are one of my favorite high volume, low calorie foods. I paired it with chicken thighs and tortillas to make this a full meal but you can enjoy as is or in tacos! INGREDIENTS (4 SERVINGS): 4 small calabacitas 1/4 white onion 4 roma tomatoes 1-3 jalapeños 2 garlic cloves Queso fresco 16 oz boneless skinless chicken thighs Low calorie corn tortillas Avocado oil spray Salt Pepper Paprika Creole seasoning Garlic powder Avocado oil spray DIRECTIONS: 1. Chop your vegetables and mince the garlic. 2. Grease a pan with avocado oil spray and add the onion, jalapeños, and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes. 3. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. 4. Add the zucchini and seasonings of choice. 5. Cover and cook on low medium heat for 12-14 minutes or until the zucchini is cooked through. 6. Season chicken thighs generously and a light amount of a oil spray. 7. Air fry at 375° for 13-15 minutes depending on size, flipping halfway. 8. 1 serving: Top 1 cup of calabacitas with 28 grams of queso fresco, 4 oz of chicken thigh, and 3-4 corn tortillas.
