4 cups fresh riced cauliflower (about 1 medium head)

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/4 cup onion, chopped

1 small jalapeno, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 teaspoon chili powder

salt & pepper, to taste

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

diced tomato, optional

sour cream, optional


  1. Remove the core and leaves from the cauliflower. Cut into florets and pulse in a food processor or use a grater. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet, over medium heat, add coconut oil and tomato paste. As coconut oil melts, gently mix with tomato paste.
  3. Add onion and jalapeno to the pan. Cook until the mixture begins to soften, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add garlic to pan and sir for 30 seconds, then pour in chicken broth.
  5. Add riced cauliflower to pan. Sprinkle salt and chili powder over cauliflower and gently fold into broth until coated and red.
  6. Continue cooking cauliflower until most moisture in the pan has evaporated and the cauliflower is tender about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat and fold in the cilantro. Serve with diced tomatoes, sour cream, and additional cilantro, if desired.


You can use frozen cauliflower, but you may need to reduce the amount of broth.
