Taco Bowls with Cauliflower Rice- a Lean and Green Recipe

Last week, I was inspired by a Facebook post from my friend Sandy Bass (www.SandysKitchenAdventures.com) to make a version of my kid’s favorite meal, tacos, and combine them with a new family favorite, cauliflower rice.  The result?  A Taco Bowl With Cauliflower Rice recipe that not only has a thick, rich sauce, but it is an Optavia Lean and Green recipe to boot!

ground beef the key to the perfect lean and green tacos

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb     cauliflower, steamed until very soft

1 1/4 lbs   lean ground beef

2 C    chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned- no sugar added)

1 T     Stacey Hawkins Southwest Seasoning  or 1 T  Stacey Hawkins Phoenix Sunrise Seasoning (or both!)

Fresh Salsa *

Grated low-fat cheddar cheese *

DIRECTIONS:

Place a large frying pan over medium high heat.  Add ground beef and using my favorite kitchen tool break up the beef and let it cook for 5 minutes, until browned.

Add tomatoes and seasoning and stir to combine.  Reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to cook for 5 minutes, until the liquid is reduced by 1/2 and thick.

While the meat is cooking, using a food processor or, my favorite kitchen tool chop steamed cauliflower up into rice-sized bits.

Place 1/2 C cauliflower rice into a bowl and top with 1/4 of the meat mixture.  *Add 1 T salsa and 1 T cheese as a condiment if desired.

Medifast Recipe, Optavia Recipe, Take Shape for Life Recipe Counts:  1/2 C “rice” is 1 green, 1/4 of the beef mixture is 1 lean, 1/2 a green option.  If you add the salsa (be sure to use sugar free) count it as 1 condiment.  If you add the cheese, count it as 1 condiment as well.
