Whole30 Mexican Inspired Cauliflower Rice - Paleo, Keto, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free, Egg-free. Easy!

We love this EASY Whole30, Paleo, Keto, gluten-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, and nut-free Mexican-inspired side dish! It comes together in 15 minutes and can use fresh or frozen riced cauliflower.

Last night for Taco Tuesday my husband and I had Whole30 Taco Salad bowls – taco meat (taco seasoning recipe here), guac, salsa, lettuce, my creamy Whole30 cilantro ranch, and THIS delicious Mexican Cauliflower Rice. I think your next Taco Tuesday needs this!

Ingredients
  

  • 3 T oil I use coconut, but olive oil or ghee can work too
  • 4 cups riced cauliflower fresh or frozen
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 c chicken broth Whole30 compatible if on a Whole30
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t cumin
  • Half bunch cilantro finely chopped

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium 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.
  • Reduce heat to medium and cover, simmeringing covered for 10-15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and cooked into the rice. Frozen cauliflower rice will take longer than fresh.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chopped cilantro.

Notes

Excellent with taco meat seasoned with my taco seasoning, or in a burrito bowl like this one topped with my Cilantro Ranch

    LOVE this!! My go-to side dish when I’m in a pinch for time. I literally keep bags of cauliflower in the freezer so I can make this on the fly. I’ve tried cauli-rice before but couldn’t get into it–but this recipe sold me! Tastes just like real Mexican rice. I make this even when I’m not on Whole30.

    • This recipe will yield 4 servings. Thank you for asking, as some of my older recipes don’t have the servings – I will add that in. Enjoy!
