  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 1 can diced fire roasted tomatoes, drained
  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro


  • Add the olive oil to a large, cast iron skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook the beef, chopping it up with a spatula as it cooks to make small crumbles. Cook the beef for about 5-6 minutes. There will no longer be any pink.
  • Add the chopped onion, pepper, and taco seasoning to the skillet and stir everything into the ground beef. Cook for another 3-4 minutes. The beef will begin to brown and the veggies will get soft.
  • Add the tomatoes and cauliflower rice to the skillet and stir again.
  • Add the chicken broth, stir and bring the mix to a simmer. Lower the heat to medium and cook the cauliflower rice for about 6 minutes. It will start to be soft and tender.
  • While the rice simmers, preheat your broiler.
  • Remove the skillet from the stovetop and sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top of the rice.
  • Place the skillet under the broiler for 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese and make it slightly brown.
  • Sprinkle the rice with the chopped cilantro and serve while hot, straight out of the skillet!
