MEXICAN SHRIMP COCKTAIL STUFFED AVOCADOS


Just 7 grams of net carbs in this dinner recipe! Shrimp ceviche or Mexican shrimp cocktail stuffed avocados with tons of veggies in a spicy sauce. These stuffed avocados are sure to become a summer dinner favorite!

Those buttery, delicious avocados are cut in half and filled with a simple combination of shrimp, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and a tomato based spicy, tangy sauce. Okay, so you could call this Mexican-style shrimp ceviche, only I’m a horrible food blogger for telling you this, but we’re not actually ‘cooking’ the shrimp in lime juice as traditionally done in ceviche. I’m a total wimp and find the whole concept just a tad bit on the scary side. 

To be completely honest with you, this was supposed to be a recipe for shrimp cocktail stuffed avocados. You know, the kind of American shrimp cocktail that consists of justshrimp and cocktail sauce. Then the guilt of eating a meal that consisted entirely of healthy fats and protein kicked in and somewhere in the back of my mind a red flag went up, gently reminding me how every resolution set for the new year involves the words ‘eating more’ and ‘veggies.’

The idea quickly expanded into Mexican shrimp cocktail stuffed avocados where tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, cilantro, and jalapenos play a decent enough roll for me to rid myself of the guilt factor. Not only do these avocado boats look prettier with all that veggie color but this meal still contains just 7 grams of net carbs and a whopping 14 grams of fiber.


MEXICAN SHRIMP COCKTAIL STUFFED AVOCADOS

Just 7 grams of net carbs in this dinner recipe! Shrimp ceviche or Mexican shrimp cocktail stuffed avocados with tons of veggies in a spicy sauce. These stuffed avocados are sure to become a summer dinner favorite!


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound cooked shrimp, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup diced red onions
  • 1-2 jalapeno, deseeded and diced*
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons shrimp cocktail sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Louisiana or Cholula)
  • 2-3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepp
  • 5-6 avocados

DIRECTIONS:


  1. Add the shrimp, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, cilantro, and cocktail sauce to a large bowl. Use 1-2 jalapenos depending on your personal preference. For us, 1 jalapeno made this plenty spicy. Add the hot sauce along with 2 tablespoons of lime juice, cayenne, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir everything together, taste and adjust the lime juice, salt and pepper to preference. Cover and refrigerate the shrimp mixture for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour to allow the flavors to develop.
  2. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit. If the avocado doesn’t have a large enough space to hold a significant amount of shrimp cocktail, scoop just a little bit of the avocado out to make space. We left them as is and just piled it on high. I like to serve these with tortilla chips on the side!

NOTES:

  1. To make this spicier you can up the number of jalapenos to two or three. We found that one jalapeno along with the cayenne and the hot sauce was spicy enough for us!
  2. You can also dice up the avocados and add them to the shrimp cocktail if you don’t care for the avocado boat idea – these are delicious no matter how you eat them!

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
