Beefy Mexi “Cauli” Rice

Ever wondered….how to eat Mexican Food and still fit into your skinny jeans? I’m just being silly, but I was wearing my skinny jeans when I made and devoured this huge bowl of Beefy Mexi “Cauli” Rice and I didn’t need to unbutton them when I finished it. This is a very EASY one pan meal, you can scale up or down accordingly, however, I was single last night, so this was ALL MINE.

I posted the below recipe and how to make this delicious dish on Facebook last night. It’s not a new recipe but just a variation of my Mexi “Cauli” Rice recipe. I was asked to post it here on Healthy Living How To as well….your wish is my command.

    I made this for supper tonight. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It was so quick and easy to make. Thanks Vanessa!

    So 2 feed this 2 my family I would have 2 use maybe 3 heads of cauliflower (etc)? Or do u recommend and is it still as good if you turn it into a “family sized” meal?

      Hi Brandi, it is going to depend on the size of the cauliflower. Most definitely this can be turned into a family size meal. Play with the ingredient amounts and enjoy!

    I made this tonight and added some corn that I had leftover, it was so so yummy!I did triple the recepie since I cook for 3 ( one is a 20 year old male who only eats healthy foods, and eats ALOT of everything) Thankfully there is some to take for lunch tomorrow to top my salad with. Thank you for sharing. Miss B

    I don’t like chunky tomatoes (i eat tomato sauce, paste, crushed tomatoes pureed in a blender) what would be a good substitute?

    I am excited to try this tonight, I have been wanting to try the Cauliflower rice and this sounds perfect. Thanks!

    Can you “rice” your cauliflower in a food processor instead of grating – and still get good results?

    • Debby Robic says

      Well, I tried it, and it makes for a finer “rice” than what is shown in the picture, but it came out great. A little spicy, though – My husband doesn’t like canned tomatoes, so I sub’d salsa. Next time I might use half salsa (drained through a strainer to reduce liquid a bit) and half tomato paste. But this is definitely a hit at our house!

    Served it on top of lettuce, with a dollop of sour cream and slices of avocado. It was heavenly as a Taco Salad!
