For when you're not a leftovers person. This recipe from Delish is the perfect way to reinvent your boring chicken leftovers. Using riced cauliflower helps to keep this dish balanced by loading it with veggies, while taking advantage of high fibre beans and corn as a complex source of carbohydrate.


We used frozen, pre-prepared riced cauliflower for convenience, and leftover rotisserie chicken for this quick weeknight meal. 


To make, you'll simply cook onion over medium heat with oil before adding garlic and spices. You'll then add cauliflower rice and cook for a few minutes before adding the remaining ingredients (except cheese), stirring to combine. You'll add cheese in the last two minutes of cooking and cover until melted. Yum!

What you'll need:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 medium onion

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • 1 bag frozen riced cauliflower

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

  • 1 cup black beans (canned, rinsed)

  • 1 cup corn kernels

  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes

  • 2 jalapenos 

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar

  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack
