Mexican Cauliflower Rice

This cauliflower rice adaptation was a big hit. We served this with fajitas (fajita salad for John and me) and fruit for a little dinner party. I made this with two bags of frozen rice and adjusted other ingredient portions accordingly.

Pressure Cooker Pinto Beans

I was really happy with this recipe – it makes a ton, and they work as a great Mexican side dish (in our case, accompanying fish tacos) or even as the star attraction of lunch. I froze half for a later meal. These are great with a little bit of queso fresco crumbled over them.

Cauliflower Rice or Broccoli Rice

This is my second or third time making cauliflower rice and probably my most basic rendition. I used this recipe for inspiration and paired it with these kebabs (using shrimp instead of chicken). Terrific meal during my low carb week.
