These were so good and so easy! We are them as nachos but they would be excellent as a taco filling. We used a homemade adobo seasoning on our chicken which made them extra good! I found it easier to brush the seasoning onto the cauliflower rather than tossing it in a bowl. Thanks for the great low carb idea!! Read More

I've made this twice. It's outstanding and now a go to recipe for leftover rotisserie chicken. I tend to add more cheese and refried beans. I add layers of Valentina hot sauce and light sour cream after cooking but it's still a healthy weeknight meal that's incredibly filling. It has layers of satisfying flavor. A topping of undressed coleslaw mix adds crunch without added work. Read More

Love this recipe a little tough to make slices so I used the flowerets and still layered the remaining ingredients. I used whole black beans vs. refried. Read More
