Recipe

Cauliflower rice has become a staple for many low carb, Paleo, gluten-free, and calorie conscious dieters. It's a terrific replacement for rice and can be used in just about any rice recipe. This Chipotle copycat brings the flavors of lime and cilantro to the cauliflower rice which make it a perfect side dish for Mexican and Asian dishes. It will keep in the fridge for a few days so don't be scared to make up a big batch.

Directions

  1. Pulse the cauliflower in a food processor into rice like pieces. You can also finely chop the cauliflower or grate it if you don't have a food processor. If you like garlic, you could add 1-2 cloves here as well.
  2. In a large pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the cauliflower rice and cook until tender. If it burns or sticks at all, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  3. Turn off the heat and add the lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper.
