Chorizo Cauliflower Rice
3 Ingredients; 15 Minutes
A Tasty and Healthy Dinner

Chorizo Cauliflower Rice...yep, 15 minutes only.  How did this recipe come together?

Well, sometimes, I would hit a road block like a dried up well.  Nothing inspires me to come up any creative ideas.  Man... I hate those moments.

This recipe was the first one coming into mind right after that recession.  It was like a light bulb turn on a switch.   Food in my fridge and freezer came into my mind.  That night, I was on a mission to try this recipe.

Man, oh soon as the flavor hit my taste buds, I felt like I am back to my normal self.

Chorizo Cauliflower decide the doneness of your egg.

Sharing with you this short story is because I want to bring this message across.  There are ups and downs in life which is reality.  We may get stuck sometimes.  Instead of holding on to it, you may be better off to walk away for a while. 

If you stumble on this roadblock, just walk away.  Take a walk, watch a movie or do something else that makes you happy and forget everything.  Then, suddenly, you see the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Chorizo Cauliflower Rice Tips

Chorizo Cauliflower it, love it, love it

Be aware that ground Chorizo is super hot.  Some people love it the way it is.  Some just can't stand it.  If you are in between, I highly recommend you to either use half of the recommended quantity of Chorizo or double the quantity of cauliflower rice.  This will cut down the heat significantly. 

Another secret ingredient to lower its heat level is sugar.  Yep, you heard me.  My mom taught me this trick since I first stepped into the kitchen when I was a kid.  A little bit goes a long way.  Enjoy this delicious quick recipe.
