Fierce Food Facts: These versatile cauliflower rice dishes can be made in just about any flavor, this Mexican variety adds a nice punch of Vitamin A with the
addition of the peppers. It is also complete with a nice dose of satiating muscle-building protein and the cheese provides almost one-third of the day's calcium.

Directions:

Heat a large sauté skillet over medium. Sauté the chorizo until cooked thoroughly. Remove chorizo with a slotted spoon and set aside in a bowl.

Cook onion in pan drippings for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add bell peppers and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove peppers and onions from the pan and add to the same bowl as the chorizo.

Add more fat to the pan, if needed, to coat the bottom of the skillet. Turn the heat to high and add one bag of frozen cauliflower rice. Spread cauliflower out across the skillet to see if you have room in the pan for the second bag. If not, cook in batches.

Once all of the rice is cooked, add it back to the sauté pan and with the chorizo, peppers, and onions. Mix in the lime juice, cilantro, and chipotle. Sprinkle with cheese and gently mix. Serve immediately.

Kids Can Cook Tips: Younger kids can help measure the spices, lime juice, and seasonings. They can also help grate the cheese, tear the fresh herbs, and juice the limes. Older kids with knife skills can dice the onions and peppers and help sauté the chorizo.
