Keto Cheesy Mexican Taco Skillet

Review

This recipe is a success! The cheese, Slim Jim and riced cauliflower gives the dish so much flavor and texture.  The twist is to use Birds Eye Riced Cauliflower and a Monster Slim Jim in a dish! I decided to test a Keto dish. I chose “Keto Cheesy Mexican Taco Skillet.” Its very simple and quick! Annd it tastes good too.

The cauliflower’s gave the dish a smooth and flaky texture, lite. It wasn’t too chunky, it was perfect! I added Birds Eye Riced Cauliflower to balance out the cheese and to give the dish a healthy balance. The second twist,  involved a what’s in your pantry challenge? I had a Monster Slim Jim in my pantry and so my mission was to create a dish that would compliment the Slim Jim.

I pulsed 1/2 of a Monster Slim Jim and added to the ground turkey as it browned. I didn’t think it would be tasty, but it was very good. This challenge was all about using your creativity! To think outside that box! The recipe turned out well because all of the ingredients complimented one another.

 

 

 

Enjoy!
