This delicious dish is so easy and is like a taco bowl. Again, a win for cauliflower rice for all you who are following a low carb/keto protocol! The flavor in this recipe is amazing without being overpowering or too spicy (if hot is your thing you can for sure add to it). Recipe adapted from newsronian.com


1 Tbsp olive or avocado oil

1 small yellow onion, diced (1 cup)

2 cups chopped bell pepper (any color)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 lb ground beef

2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp)

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

Few dashes cayenne pepper, (optional)

1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained

3 Tbsp minced fresh parsley

2 (10 oz) pkgs. frozen cauliflower rice, cooked according to package instructions and seasoned with salt

1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

Transfer pepper mixture to a plate and set aside.

Brown the beef in a skillet and season with salt and pepper, garlic, chili powder, cumin and cayenne.
