  • 1/2 c compliant chicken broth
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t cumin

  • Half bunch cilantro finely chopped


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once heated, add the riced cauliflower
  • Cook riced cauliflower in oil for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
