One of my favorite tricks to make recipes more Weight Watchers friendly is to substitute cauliflower rice for regular rice. Did you know that rice has at least 5-7 SmartPoints per cup, depending on the variety? I don’t know about you, but I would much rather have a cup of cauliflower rice, which is only 0 SmartPoints per cup. I typically just use rice as a sponge for whatever I cook alongside it, so I’d prefer to save my daily point allotment for the good stuff—not just the filler.
Today I’m sharing an Easy Taco Cauliflower Rice Skillet, which comes together in under 30 minutes and is bursting with delicious Mexican flavor. This recipe was a big hit when I served it to my family recently and is perfect for Taco Tuesday or any day you are craving Mexican (which is basically every day for me).
I like to serve this tasty rice with a variety of tasty toppings including fat free sour cream, salsa, avocado, corn chips and spicy bean dip. I also like how versatile this rice skillet can be. You can substitute in any type of ground meat you like, add beans, use it as a stuffing for burritos, and spice it up as you prefer.
This Easy Taco Cauliflower Rice Skillet satisfied my craving for Mexican food and left me feeling full and energized (instead of sleepy like a typical carb heavy mexican dish does). I hope your family will enjoy this flavorful dish as much as mine does!
