Zapallitos Rellenos Andy Style and Beef Wontons

Zapallitos rellenos is something that I used to love having when I lived in Uruguay. My mum used to make them quite often and of course I have those moments of missing them.

Over here in Florida we don’t have the same style of Zapallitos (baby pumpkins), but we do have Courgettes (Zuchinnis) that have the same flavor, just a different shape.

So out came the Courgettes, sliced them in half and hollowed them out. Sautéed some onions with the stuff I took out of the courgettes, added salt and pepper, minced meat and then I added a big dollop of Spicy Tomato sauce.

Stuffed the courgettes and then topped them off with some garlic bread crumbs and some parmesan cheese.

Into a 385 Deg F oven they went for about 40 minutes and then put them under the broiler for just 5 minutes.

Now lunch and dinner is ready for tomorrow.

I found myself with some leftover meat concoction and decided to put it into my Wonton Wrappers and quickly deep fried them for a wonderful late afternoon lunch snack dipped in some spicy Sriracha Mayo 🙂
