INGREDIENTS:


  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 c. cauliflower rice
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 c. shredded rotisserie chicken

DIRECTIONS:


 

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, oregano, and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add more olive oil if the skillet seems dry, then add cauliflower rice. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add tomato paste and stir until evenly combined and the cauli rice is slightly red. Add chicken, black beans, corn, tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro and stir until evenly combined.
  • Top cauli rice with both cheeses, then cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with lime wedges.
