Southwestern Cauliflower Rice

Today I’m sharing my southwestern cauliflower rice recipe. Be sure to try this one out and let me know your thoughts!

I recently felt like I was in a bit of a cooking rut. Tired of the usual recipe roundup, I wanted to try something new. I had a bag of cauliflower rice from Costco and did not have a clue what to do with it. Cauliflower rice, in my opinion, is pretty flavorless so I wanted to be sure to cook it up with flavorful ingredients. I decided to try it out with my favorite combination of black beans and corn. This is how my southwestern cauliflower rice recipe was born.

My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s pretty simple to make and only requires dirtying one pan. Does anyone else hate cooking and then having to deal with a bunch of dirty pots and pans afterward? ME!

It’s also a versatile meal. You can serve it over a salad like a burrito bowl salad or inside tortillas for taco night.
P.S. – It’s fantastic with some avocado (or guacamole) on top!
