Ingredients

  • 1 lb 85% Ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp Taco seasoning, divided
  • 2 Cups Riced cauliflower
  • 1 Pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup Cheddar cheese, grated and packed (divided)
  • 1 Cup Salsa
  • 4 Tbsp Heavy cream
  • 2 oz Cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat your oven to 375 degrees F
  • Heat a large, oven-safe pan on medium high heat and cook the beef until no longer pink. Add in 2 tsp of the taco seasoning and cook another minute. Transfer to a bowl. Do not wipe out the pan.
  • Add the cauliflower rice and the pepper directly to the pan and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tsp of taco seasoning and cook another minute
  • Add the beef back into the pan and stir to combine.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients (only 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese), except the cilantro, and stir until the cream cheese melts and everything is combined.
  • Bring a boil and boil for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, just until the mixture thickens.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle on the cheese. Bake until bubbly, about 15 mins.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and DEVOUR!
