1 head cauliflower, cored and broken into large clusters
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes with green chilies, very well drained
1 tablespoon taco seasoning, reduced sodium
1/4 cup Mexican shredded cheese blend
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1 tablespoon diced fresh cilantro or parsley (optional)
Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Microwave for 4-5 minutes or until the cauliflower is cooked through but still slightly firm, about the texture of cooked rice.
Mix in remaining ingredients except cilantro/parsley, stir very well. Return to microwave and heat through, 2-3 minutes or so. Stir in herbs and serve piping hot.
For a little more kick add in a pinch of cayenne of a few dashes of Tabasco.
