Keto Spanish Rice-a-Phoney

My friend, Deanna showed me how to make this recipe. I love it and make it about every other week, if not more.

Riced cauliflower is an excellent substitute for rice. I have even made my own from putting a fresh head of cauliflower through the grater on my food processor. This is a great low carb food.
