Mexican food is my go to. I love chips and quest, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, guacamole…all of it. Since I have started my KETO journey it has been a priority of mine to find yummy alternatives to fill my Mexican cravings and this Cauliflower Rice is perfect.
A new way to rice
Everywhere you look cauliflower rice is being talked about. People are using it in all sorts of recipes, some of which I cannot wait to try (so be on the look out). My first time to use cauliflower rice was in this amazing casserole and now I am obsessed with the mexican style side.
It brings all the best flavors of a traditional Mexican rice to this low carb version that everyone can enjoy. Another plus is that it only has 5 net Carbs per serving!
Loaded with flavor
To help build the flavor I started this dish with chopped bell peppers and onions. Next came the green chilies, garlic and all the spices. Chili powder and taco seasoning are the bulk of spices. While this dish has a ton of flavor it is not super spicy making it a dish anyone can enjoy.
To add some spice you can add in some chopped jalapeños or a dash of cayenne pepper.
You could also finish it with some fresh lime juice for a bit of freshness with the cilantro.
Cheese or NO Cheese
I love cheese, and I love the cheese in this dish as it adds an extra layer of richness and creaminess. If you are not into cheese, or cannot have it, you can skip it all together.
You could add in some chopped avocado or sour cream to for some creaminess, but it really is so good just as is… trust me this is a side you will LOVE.
The perfect side for dinner tonight
