The low carb Mexican skillet dinner recipe is so easy and popular with my fam that I wanted to make something similar, but different. Plus, I have some zucchini to use up!

Enter the sausage zucchini skillet recipe. Another low carb dinner winner! However, my kids did let me know that it would be better if I put less green stuff in there. Sorry, kids, you have to eat good green stuff every once in a while. Haha. So I didn’t take away the green stuff, but I did add more sausage. 😉

If smoked sausage isn’t your thing, feel free to substitute or leave it out. It is my family’s favorite part though!

My kiddos didn’t even know that the “rice stuff” was actually cauliflower until I told them. Of course, if your kids are like mine, you may want to wait until after they have finished eating it to tell them about that. 😉

I love that grocery stores often offer riced cauliflower in the produce section and freezer section now days. Makes the prep that much easier and faster! Just grab a bag of frozen riced cauliflower and keep it in the freezer for when you want to make a quick skillet dinner or for whatever else you use riced cauliflower.

Feel free to use canned diced tomatoes in place of the fresh tomatoes, but you may want to drain the extra liquid first. If you have tomatoes from the garden though, it is a great way to utilize them!
