Chipolte Copycat Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

No Rice for You!

With my lapband surgery I cannot have rice or if I do rice it has to be a very small amount. So every once in a while I will have the brown rice at Chipolte’s, but if I eat too much I start hurting. So no rice for me!

Cauliflower Rice

One of my favorite substitutes to everyday rice is cauliflower rice. Honestly it’s even easier than regular rice. I love doing it in the microwave because I’m all about convenience.

So I decided I should combine the two, Chipolte’s famous cilantro lime rice flavor with cauliflower rice. This is what I created:
