Craving a tasty burrito bowl but tired of having to tell the nice person assembling it, “YES I KNOW THE GUACAMOLE IS EXTRA”? Make one at home! Of course, a burrito bowl isn’t quite the same when you can’t eat white rice ’cause it spikes your blood sugar. The solution? Whip up some Mexi-Cauli Rice!

Spiced-up cauliflower rice is life-changing. This easy-peasy Mexi-Cauli Rice is made from pantry staples and it’s the perfect vegetable-packed accompaniment for your favorite Mexican-inspired home-cooked meals. It’s super-quick to make, too—I always have bags of riced cauliflower in my freezer or fridge so I can cook this side dish without making a big mess with my food processor. You don’t even have to change out of your pajamas to scratch that Whole30-friendly burrito bowl itch!
