I’m in the process of converting my favorite rice dishes to the healthy side and I am having SO much fun doing it! 🙂 I am seriously obsessed with cauliflower rice lately because it allows me to have all my favorite creamy ingredients without heading into crossover mode. I haven’t noticed a difference in texture and am just as happy with my cauli-rice dishes as I was with their carby originals.
This Fiesta “Rice” Casserole is creamy, cheesy, full of healthy cauliflower and has a kick of spice. It’s simple to throw together and would only have 5 ingredients if I hadn’t added the extra pizzazz of a few spices. I created this recipe with the thought in mind that it would be nice to have a simple meal to make when life gets busy. You can prep this in the morning and put it in the fridge to bake later that evening.
I used chicken breast in my recipe, but as this is already an “S”, feel free to use ground beef or even spicy sausage. You can use whatever non-starchy veggies you have on hand. I think spinach, green peppers, a little onion and maybe a few jalapenos would be heavenly! I topped my casserole with salsa (pictured) and some homemade guacamole and sour cream (not pictured). I made my own cauli-rice, but you can use the pre-made cauliflower rice found in grocery stores.
The recipe makes 1 8×8 inch pan.
