Chicken, Onion, & Peppers

  • 1 1/2 tbsp cooking fat of choice, I use extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil.
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 onion onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Cauliflower Rice

  • 16 oz riced cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup salsa, Use your favorite store-bought salsa.
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice

Easy Taco Seasoning

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Add cooking fat of choice to a hot skillet on medium high heat.
  • Cut chicken into very small pieces, about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch in size. Place chicken, diced onion, and diced green pepper in skillet. Salt and pepper. Sauté until chicken is mostly cooked through (approximately 3 to 4 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  • Add all other ingredients to skillet. Stir until well combined. Reduce heat to medium. Cover. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes. Cauliflower rice should be tender when done.
  • Enjoy as is or top with guacamole, salsa, fresh cilantro, or my Creamy Avocado Dressing & Dip


This recipe can yield 4 reasonable servings that you may want to add a side too. A salad or roasted veggies would be a perfect fit.
You can also get 2 very large servings from it if you prefer to serve it alone. (Beware, you will be very full. Not that I've tested that. But I have. Obviously.)
