Mexican Fried Cauliflower Rice, when eaten with Slow Cooked Chicken Fajitas, will fool your brain into thinking you are eating rice.
Most days I am trying to broaden my horizon’s and seeing if I can figure out another side dish to eat with my meals. This Cauliflower rice is so tasty and an excellent side dish to any meal but especially Mexican food. Most of the time I have to create spice blend recipes from scratch. But that’s okay as it helps me grow as a recipe writer. As a matter of fact, I use my own taco seasoning blend in this recipe.
It is especially important to reserve the liquid from the slow cooker as it will have developed a rich depth of flavor that will intertwine and meld and enhance the cauliflower rice flavors. Indeed the juices will permeate the cauliflower rice with a rich, smokey, sweet and spicy flavor that will leave you daydreaming about this rice for days. This dish is complex in flavor with a burst of texture.
Together with Slow Cooked Fajitas, this side dish will fool your mind into thinking it is actual rice. Funny how the brain works.
It is my hope that all who read my blog will have an amazing and blessed day. Again I will ask those who read my blog if today you could complete a RAK. RAK stands for random acts of kindness as you never know what someone else is going through. Perhaps my readers and I can affect some small circle of kindness to be passed around. It is my humble belief that there is more good in the world than bad, perhaps we can all help each other find the good and focus on that. To one and all please know that you are all special and one of a kind. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my recipes and read my humble blog.
