It’s a new year so it’s the perfect time to try new things! I have been hearing so many things about cauliflower rice lately so I had to try it out. However, I wasn’t quite sure what the hubs would think of it! So I decided to use the cauliflower rice to make chicken enchilada “rice” bowls. I chose this recipe since the cauliflower rice wouldn’t be the predominant flavor since it was our first time trying it!
I love my Cuisinart pressure cooker I got right before Christmas! I still haven’t used it to it’s full potential I’m sure but I love what I have made with it so far. I used the pressure cooker to make my chicken. I simply threw in the frozen chicken with red enchilada sauce and turned it on high pressure for 25 minutes.
Yes, you read that right. Frozen. Chicken. ya’ll! I’m a pro at forgetting to defrost meat in the morning or the day before so the pressure cooker really saves the day for me. Once the chicken was almost finished I popped the cauliflower rice from Whole Foods with garlic powder into the microwave for 5 minutes. Once it was finished I added in some cilantro and lime juice for the perfect cauliflower lime rice.
Then I added all sorts of yummy toppings-it can really be whatever you want! I used black beans, peppers, corn, black olives, cheese and more cilantro.
I loved it! It had a super fresh taste and wasn’t heavy at all. I’m excited to use cauliflower rice in other recipes to make them a bit healthier. This cauliflower couscous recipe looks like a great side dish to try next!
