Tex Mex Caulirice Bowl #SundaySupper

My family has a big love of rice bowls, but also want to watch their carbohydrate intake.  We discovered frozen cauliflower rice, known as caulirice, at our local Trader Joe's.  The "rice" is easy to cook from frozen state, reduces the carbs in our dish and we love the taste!

This Tex Mex version is so easy to make, and if you set it up like a bar, each person can add to it what they want, which is what we do at our house.  Our toppings include seasoned chicken breast, avocado, shredded cheese, restaurant style salsa, chopped onion, cilantro, beans, corn, and sour cream.

Tex Mex Caulirice Bowls

1 bag of frozen Trader Joe's Cauliflower Rice
3 chicken breasts
1 T taco or southwestern seasoning
1 T butter
1 avocado, sliced
1 c shredded cheese
1 c restaurant style salsa
1/2 c chopped onion
1/4 c cilantro
1 c black beans
1 c corn
1 c sour cream

Preheat oven to 450. Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts.  Melt the butter in the microwave. Place the chicken breasts in a baking pan, pour the butter over the breasts.  Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the chicken breasts, covering evenly.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until chicken reaches 140.  Remove from oven, rest 10 minutes, check temperature again, make sure breasts come to 160 and that the juices run clear.  Slice the chicken breasts and place into a serving dish.

Follow the directions on the cauliflower rice.  Divide into four bowls.  Set out the avocado, cheese, salsa, onion, cilantro, black beans, corn and sour cream.

Top the rice with the chicken and toppings, however you like them!  Serve immediately.
