A simple one pan cauliflower rice recipe with sliced jalapenos, onions, cilantro, and lime juice.


  • Knife and Cutting Board
  • food processor or cheese grater
  • large deep frying pan


  • 1 small onion sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large cauliflower or ready-made cauliflower rice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil/butter
  • 3 large jalapeno sliced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • cup lime juice from 2 fresh limes
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • If using fresh cauliflower, rice using one of the methods outlined in the post above (food processor, box grater, knife).
  • Heat butter/olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add sliced onions, cumin, and garlic, fry for 2-3 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  • Next add in riced cauliflower and sliced jalapenos, combine well. Season liberally with salt and fry for 10-15 minutes until the cauliflower rice is tender and slightly al dente. Stir occasionally and add butter/olive oil as needed to prevent burning.
  • Right before serving, stir in fresh cilantro and lime juice, season to taste.


Leftovers and Reheating: Store leftovers sealed in the fridge for use within a week. To reheat, use a microwave, oven, or a pan with some butter on the stove. 
Control the Heat and Spice Level by removing some or all of the white membrane and seeds from the jalapenos.
