Mexican Cauliflower Rice
In large saucepan heat up avocado oil and add in riced cauliflower, cover for 2 minutes to steam
Add in chili powder, cumin and salt and stir to combine seasonings. Cover and and cook on medium heat for 5-8 minutes. I like mine a little browned on the bottom so watch and cook and taste along the way until you get desired consistency.
Once it is done to your liking take off heat and add in lime juice. Stir and cover to keep warm until you are done cooking the rest of your toppings.
Add in 1/2 tbsp avocado oil in saucepan until hot then add in cut up chicken thighs (or other protein of choice!) brown on all sides
Add in seasonings (chili powder, cumin, sea salt, coriander, ancho chili powder) and cook until chicken is no longer pink in middle. Set aside in a bowl and cover to keep warm, use the same pan for the peppers/ onions
Peppers & Onions
Add in 1/2 tbsp avocado oil in your same saucepan you used for chicken to incorporate flavors. Stir in seasonings right away and then cover. Let cook for 5 minutes on medium and then stir. I like mine browned a little bit, cook until your desired doneness.
After you rinse beans, I like to add in a little chili powder, lime juice and heat on low until everything else is ready to go. No necessary but a little extra flavor!
Idea only this is where you get creative! Start with your 'Mexican Rice' add protein, beans, peppers, onions, salsa, avocado and cilantro. Top with a sprinkle of lime juice / chili lime seasoning. ENJOY!
