Equipment

  • 9 x 13 baking dish

Ingredients

  • 24 oz frozen cauliflower florets *we used the two 12 Oz steam-able bags. However this amount can be reduced
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked chicken shredded (A Rotisserie chicken works great!)
  • 8 oz Green Salsa Verde we used LaVictoria
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz Green Chiles optional
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro optional

Instructions

Prepare Chicken and Cauliflower Mixture

  • Micro wave your 2 bags of cauliflower to cook and soften, add into a large bowl
  • In a separate bowl you should have your 2 cups of shredded chicken. (we used 4 chicken breast)
  • Combine your cooked cauliflower and shredded chicken together (use your fingers to mix well)
  • Set aside your cauliflower and shredded chicken

PREPARE YOUR CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE

  • Take your 8 oz of softened Cream Cheese and added it to a separate bowl
  • Add 1/2 of cup of sour cream in with your cream cheese
  • Mix your softened cream cheese and sour cream together until it is smooth.
  • Add 1 cup of green salsa into your cream cheese and sour cream mixture and stir.
  • Combine your chicken and cauliflower mixture into your cream cheese and sour cream and combine well using a spoon.
  • Add one small can of Hatch Green Chiles into your mixture for a real southwest flare.
  • Add fresh chopped cilantro to taste (this is optionaand stir into your mixture.

Final Assembly and Cooking

  • PREHEAT YOUR OVEN AT 375 DEGREES
  • Take a 9×13 Oven Proof dish and grease the bottom of your dish (we used a 9×13 because it allows us to spread the dish out for FASTER Cooking!)
  • Spread half of your casserole into your dish and spread out evenly
  • Spread 1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese over this layer of the casserole.
  • Spread the remainder of the casserole mixture on top of the Monterey Jack cheese layer (spread evenly)
  • Spread the remainder of your cheese over the top layer
  • Bake in your preheated 375 degree over for 20-25 minutes or until your cheese is a golden brown.

Notes

6 Net Carbs for a 6 oz serving
You could probably reduce the carbs by using less cauliflower.
