Low carb recipes are a staple in this house and one that we are going crazy over is this INCREDIBLE Green Chili Cauliflower Mash
Low Carb Green Chili?
Look, I know what you are thinking, can there really be such a thing as low carb green chili. Well the answer is yes…and no. If you are purchasing green chili in store or from a restaurant, you have minimal chance of eating low carb. I however, have found a solution that gets you a ton of flavor with very few carbs!
Diced Green Chili and a few spices. I know, it is not that smother all the things in it, green chili that you are dreaming of, but I promise you that it hits the spot, gives you that spice and will make that boring cauliflower mash, come to life!
Cooking this recipes is super simple. Start by chopping up a head of cauliflower and steaming it. This is where I add my first few spices as well. A touch of garlic salt, some dried oregano and chopped onions and you are off to a great start.
While the cauliflower is steaming with the spices, start browning your sausage. I also like to add a little of the garlic salt to my ground sausage as well.
Once the sausage is cooked, add in a can of diced green chilis and do NOT drain. You want all that flavor. My family also loves mushrooms in this recipe, but you can have it with or without, your choice. Mushrooms will add carbs to your meal, so if you are trying to stay low carb, nix them.
Mix the meat and green chilis (and mushrooms) together and allow the green chili juice to simmer. Once the cauliflower is done being steamed, add it to the pan and toss everything together. It is ready to serve.
