Mexican Cauliflower Rice

I love eating Mexican food. It has been easy for me to come up with keto substitutes for Mexican entrees, such as Mexican chicken or Carne Asada. Side dishes have presented more of a problem for me, because we don’t eat rice and beans. This Mexican-style Cauliflower Rice fixes that problem for me.

Here is the recipe:

Mexican Cauliflower Rice


  • 20 oz. riced cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1/4 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa or pico de gallo
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


Heat the ghee in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and saute it for about 3 minutes, until the cauliflower begins to brown. Add the onion and saute until the onions are tender.

Stir in the salsa, garlic, tomato paste, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
