  • 1 large onion sliced thin

  • 1 large red bell pepper sliced thin

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil or other cooking fat

Instructions for cauli rice:

for beef, peppers, onions:

  1. Meanwhile in a separate skillet (or the same one after cooking the cauli rice) heat 1 tbsp coconut oil over medium high heat.

  2. Crumble the beef into the skillet and break up lumps with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add the salt and all seasonings and cook, stirring occasionally until browned. Do not drain the fat. Lower heat to medium-low and add the tomato paste and water, stir to combine. Continue to cook and stir until thickened, then remove to a separate bowl.

  3. Heat the same skillet over medium (keeping juices in skillet) and add 1 tbsp coconut oil. Add peppers and onions and stir to coat with fat. Sprinkle with a bit of sea salt to taste, and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until softened and browning, then remove from heat.

  4. To make the guacomole, mash together the avocado with the rest of the ingredients, adjusting seasonings to taste.

  5. *To assemble the bowls, begin with the cauliflower rice, then layer the beef, peppers and onions, and guacamole. Garnish with more cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice if desired.
