Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Servings: 4

This is one of my absolute favorite quick dinners. In the time it takes to cook ground beef and chop up vegetables, you have a tasty easy dinner. Build the bowl with the toppings you like and everyone is happy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef (soy chorizo, black beans, chick peas, or sweet potato would be great to make this vegan/vegetarian!)
  • 2 bags frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning OR
    • 2 tsp chili powder
    • 1.5 tsp cumin
    • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
    • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 lime
  • 1 large handful cilantro leaves chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Toppings
    • Sour cream
    • Salsa
    • Avocado
    • Tomatoes
    • Pickled Onions/Jalapenos
    • Shredded Cheese
    • WHATEVER YOU LIKE!

Directions:

In a large skillet add ground beef over medium-high heat. When it begins to brown and release some juice, add diced onion and garlic and continue to cook. While the beef mixture is cooking through, add your taco seasoning and the juice of half the lime. Stir to combine all together.

While your meat is browning cook your 2 bags of cauliflower rice in the microwave a couple minutes short of the package directions. When the rice is thawed, pour it into a non stick pan and continue cooking until all the water has evaporated. I like to take this extra step in the pan to make sure the rice isn’t too watery. When the water is cooked out and the cauliflower rice is hot and beginning to toast, pull off the heat and stir in the cilantro and juice of the other lime half. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Time to build your bowl!

Put 1/4 of the cauliflower rice in a bowl and a 1/4 of the seasoned meat.

Then top with all the toppings you love!

Time to eat! A really easy go to dinner idea that packs in some veggies but still punches like a burrito! One of my favorites!
