Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    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)

Directions

Finely dice cauliflower in a food processor using the shredding plate or by hand using a box grater. The cauliflower should be about the size of cooked rice grains. Some pieces will be slightly smaller or larger, this is fine.

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.

Number of Servings: 6
