HOW TO MAKE MEXICAN CAULIFLOWER RICE
You can start with already riced cauliflower from the freezer section, or from the fresh section in the grocery store. I would use at least 2 packages.
For this recipe, I used fresh cauliflower that I riced in my food processor. It was super easy and I would encourage you to do the same.
You can follow this tutorial for making riced cauliflower. I just put the florets in the food processor and run it until the cauliflower resembles rice. Easy peasy!
Now it's time to get cooking! In a large skillet, I heated my oil and then sautéed the onion until it was soft. I then added the garlic and the cauliflower rice.
