  • 1 (16 oz) package cauliflower rice
  • 1 pound extra-lean (at least 85%) ground beef, see shopping tips
  • cups onions, diced
  • 1 (1 oz) package Old El Paso original taco seasoning mix, Lawry’s or your favorite
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso red enchilada sauce or your favorite
  • 1 can (10 oz) Ro*Tel Original mild Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained (use your favorite brand, if desired)
  • 1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained, rinsed
  • 3 (8-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas, cut into 1-inch strips or squares, see shopping tips
  • 1 cup shredded light Mexican cheese blend, cheddar cheese, or dairy-free cheese, see shopping tips


  • To Cook Cauliflower Rice: Add rice to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for about 4-5 minutes, until soft. Remove cover and set aside.
  • In a large non-stick pan cook ground beef and onions together over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, breaking up into a crumble and stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain. Add beef back to pan.
  • Stir in cauliflower rice, taco seasoning mix, water, enchilada sauce, tomatoes, and beans. Cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in tortilla strips; top with cheese. Cover skillet; set aside 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • To Serve: Spoon about 1¼ cups into each bowl. Top with a little skinny ranch, or non-fat Greek yogurt, chopped tomatoes, and shredded lettuce, if desired.
  • Any leftovers freeze great!

Shopping Tips
I used Guerrero whole wheat soft tortillas (8-inch each). Most supermarkets sell this brand or use your favorite brand like Mission. Look for a brand that’s ~110 calories each.
I used Trader Joe’s 96% lean ground beef. Sometimes I use (85%) organic, grass feed from Trader joe’s
I like Sargento’s light Mexican cheese or light cheddar. Sometimes I use Follow Your Heart’s dairy-free smoked gouda, diced. This is what I used in the photo above.
