Caregory : Dinner Ideas

Ground beef and cauliflower combine to create a hearty weeknight casserole that both kids and adults will love. Serve with tortilla chips and sour cream.


    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

    • ½ cup chopped onion

    • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

    • 1 pound lean ground beef

    • 3 cups bite-size cauliflower florets

    • 3 cloves garlic, minced

    • 2 tablespoons chili powder

    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

    • ½ teaspoon salt

    • ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle

    • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added petite-diced tomatoes

    • 2 cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

    • ⅓ cup sliced pickled jalapeños


    1. Position rack in upper third of oven. Preheat broiler to high.

    2. Heat oil in a large broiler-safe skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add beef and cauliflower; cook, stirring and breaking the beef up into smaller pieces, until it is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and chipotle; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and their juices; bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced and the cauliflower is tender, about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.

    3. Sprinkle cheese over the beef mixture and top with sliced jalapeños. Broil until the cheese is melted and browned in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.
