Copycat Chipotle Cauliflower Rice

Copycat Chipotle Cauliflower Rice

Copycat Chipotle Cauliflower Rice sure has saved the day in my house! I'm a big fan of Chipotle and probably make that style of burrito-bowl at least once a week but I'm trying to watch my calories - and rice isn't great for that! I made this cauliflower rice in about 10 minutes and it's super tasty!

Break down your cauliflower 1 of 2 ways: 
  1. Box Grater - you can use the small side of your cheese/box grater and grate the head of cauliflower. I peeled off all of the leaves and cut off the stem first - then cut the head in half. After that, just grate away! It's a nice five minute arm workout.
  2. Food Processor - another option is to trim your cauliflower down to large florets and pulse in the food processor until it breaks down to rice-sized pieces.
