Pinto Beans and Cauliflower Rice
2 12-ounce bags of frozen cauliflower rice, thawed
1/4 cup unsalted vegetable broth/stock
1 tbsp Homemade Taco Seasoning
Salt, to taste (we used 1/8 tsp with unsalted beans)
Optional add-in: 1 tbsp tomato paste or serve topped with fresh Pico de Gallo
Optional garnishes: Lime wedges, diced red onions, jalapeno slices, guacamole, fresh cilantro.
Add beans with liquid, cauliflower rice, and taco seasoning, to a large sauté pan. Warm over medium-high heat until the beans are heated through, cauliflower rice softens, and the liquid has reduced to desired thickness (5-10 minutes).
Serve immediately, garnished as desired.
Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight glass container up to 4 days.
