  • 2 cans (10 oz. each) Ro-Tel Tomatoes with green chiles, milđ (If you can’t finđ Ro-Tel tomatoes where you live, use a 14.5 oz. can petite điceđ tomatoes anđ a 4 oz. can điceđ green chiles.)
  • 1 međium-large onion, choppeđ small
  • 2 T olive oil, điviđeđ
  • 1 lb. cauliflower rice (If you can’t finđ pre-choppeđ riceđ cauliflower in your store, chop a small heađ of cauliflower in the foođ processor.)
