  • Frying Pan


  • 1 large tomato
  • 5 leaves iceberg
  • ½ cup cheese
  • 1 egg

Cauliflower Rice

  • 2 cups cauliflower rice I used frozen
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp cumin powder

Taco Meat

  • ¼ onion
  • ½ red pepper
  • ½ lb ground beef or ground pork, chicken
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • 1.25 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika powder
  • ¾ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 1.5 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup water


Taco Meat

  • Dice the onion and red pepper.
  • In a frying pan, add the olive oil and cook the onion and red pepper on medium heat until soft. Add the ground meat and cook for 2 minutes, just until browned.
    Add all of the spices and water and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until all of the water has evaporated. Set the meat aside. Don't wash the pan, you'll use it in the next step.

Sunny Side Up Egg

  • Crack the egg open in the previous frying pan. Cook on medium heat, covered, for a good 2 minutes. The egg white should be cooked through and the egg yolk should still be runny. Set aside once cooked.

Cauliflower Rice

  • Add the oil, cauliflower rice and spices to a frying pan. Cook 4-5 minutes until all of the cauliflower has been cooked through and is soft enough to eat.

Assemble the Taco Rice

  • Chop the lettuce and tomato.
  • Add the cauliflower rice on a large plate, cover with the chopped lettuce, ground meat, cheese, tomato and then fried egg.
    This makes two servings!


If you're not on a low carb diet, simply replace the cauliflower rice for white rice.  
  • Instead of cauliflower rice, you can use broccoli rice or shirataki rice.
  • Instead of ground beef, you can use ground pork, ground chicken or ground turkey.
