  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until soft, about 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, chicken broth, chili powder, cumin, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  2. Add cauliflower rice and mix well. Cover and cook until cauliflower is heated through, about 3 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid evaporates and rice appears dry, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Simply substitute the spices with taco seasoning if available.
