Mexican Rice Recipe

Don't you hate it when you look in the fridge and can't find anything you want to eat?

Or, what about when you're scrambling between classes/work, and you know you're going to be starving later, so you're searching to have something prepared lest the food monster emerge from within your dark and eerie soul...? Anybody?

I just love when diet desperation blossoms into a beautiful kitchen creation.

I'm telling you, guys, this frozen cauliflower will work wonders. I've posted several recipes or little meals featuring cauliflower subbed for the typical bread/potato/rice carb, and you can bunch this one right along with the others. Maybe it's my tattered and abused palate but you just can't mess this up.

Mexican Rice (Feat. Cauliflower)


  • Frozen cauliflower (1 bag)
  • Diced green chiles (1 can)
  • Bell pepper (I used one red one)
  • Mrs. Dash Chipotle Lime seasoning (tons of it)
  • Garlic salt


  • I used some frozen okra (about 3/4 cup).
  • I added some pre-cooked chicken breast to it (awesome). I'd also try canned chicken.
  • If I had some, I would have thrown in some salsa.


Mix all ingredients around in a casserole dish. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. The mushier it is, the easier it is to take a knife and chop it up like rice. Uncover the dish, chop up the ingredients, and serve with salsa, fat-free sour cream or even atop a bed of greens.

I wonder what it would taste like mixed with some beans???
