We love cauliflower rice. This rice pilaf is fantastic for example. It’s first thing we think about when pairing proteins. I always consider what I can add to it for flavors, of course, but it’s definitely become my go-to for side dishes.
Cauli-rice is fabulous stuff. It easily takes on the flavors of whatever you add to it. It’s versatile, always tasty and goes with just about anything.
This particular mexican cauliflower rice dish is just as versatile.
You don’t have to put this in a casserole dish, you could just as easily toss everything together in a bowl.
But we enjoy a good, comforting casserole that can be reheated easily. If you are the same then this is the way to go.
What else could you do with this? Lots!! Add some cooked chicken, ground beef, cheese! All sorts of ways to dress the dish up and done.
We know there are others out there who sometimes need a break from the dairy and meat and this dish fits that bill to be able to go both way!
