What you need

Homemade Taco Seasoning

  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tbsp.ancho chili powder
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)


Pour cauliflower rice into a large bowl and add taco seasoning. Toss to coat and set aside. Slice bell peppers into strips and set aside.

Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. When the oil is shimmering, add peppers and saute for 3 minutes. Add seasoned cauliflower rice and sauté for another 3 minutes. Pour in water, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Let the mixture simmer for 6 minutes.

Uncover and push the vegetables to one side of the pan. Place chicken in an empty spot, and stir to warm for 3 minutes. Mix everything together, continuing to stir, for another 4-5 minutes until chicken is warmed through, and liquid has disappeared.

Serve in bowls or with tortillas. Top with avocado and cilantro if desired.
