Cauliflower Rice and  Beef Bowl

Beef and rice bowls are easy and delicious, but rice isn’t ketogenic.

Thankfully, you can get cauliflower rice right from the store in the frozen

aisle, and it has a nearly identical texture to white rice! In this recipe, you

season it with garlic, salt, pepper, and a Poblano pepper. The beef is cooked

in a skillet with salsa, green chiles, and the homemade taco seasoning you

saw back in the section on pork. Once it’s all done, top with cheese, tomato,

and fresh avocado.

Ingredients

Rice

  • 24-ounces frozen cauliflower rice
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 chopped and seeded Poblano pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Beef

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ cup tomato salsa
  • ½ cup water
  • 4-ounces diced green chiles
  • 1 tablespoon homemade taco seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Taco seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano

Toppings

  • 2 diced avocados
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Directions

1. Put 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet and heat on medium-high.

2. Add ground beef, salt, and pepper.

3. Cook and break up with a spatula, until no pink is left.

4. Add taco seasoning, salsa, water, and green chiles.

5. Simmer until the liquid is almost all evaporated.

6. If you haven’t prepped your veggies, while the meat simmers is a

good time.

7. Once the beef is done, it’s time for the cauliflower.

8. Heat olive oil in another pan and add garlic.

9. When the garlic is fragrant, you can take them out if you don’t like

garlic chunks in your food.

10. Next, add the Poblano and cook until it begins to soften. It should

only take about 2-3 minutes.

11. Stir in rice for 3-5 minutes.

12. When the rice is heated through, it’s ready to serve.

13. Put rice in a bowl, and then layer on meat, cheese, and toppings.

14. Serve with sour cream!
