Great one skillet meal!

Guest
I made it per recipe except used ground bison, which is really lean, so added a bit of avocado oil. Also, used Tatooed Chef frozen cauliflower stir-fry from Costco. It's what I had on hand. Satisfying, keto friendly meal. Really loved the seasonings. I might add some black olives next time. Very flexible recipe. Reheated some leftovers for lunch and topped with lightly fried eggs (per previous comment), shredded cheddar, a few dashes of Cholula hot sauce and the cilantro. Yum!

Cauliflower rice & hamburger

Guest
Great recipe! Added chopped celery & a smidgen of zucchini. I’ll try shredding 1/2cup zucchini & add it next time. Definitely will use riced cauliflower from the garden. Can’t use anything newly preserved until after 1st snow fall🙂

My husband and I enjoyed this. He wants me to add more ‘heat’ to it next time, but the key is that there will be a next time.

Good as a burrito stuffer

I add some celery, corn kernels, and jalapeño along with some taco seasoning. Wrap it up in a tortilla with a dab of sour cream for a quick burrito that my family loved.
