When I think of Mexican food, I think of spice. This recipe allows you to eat outside of the box with new Mexican-style veggies that are great for grilling or sautéing, pair perfectly with tacos or “rice” bowls, and don’t cause flare ups.

In this dish, lemon replaces lime to give the chicken tenderness while adding a delicious citrus taste! I also replace rice with cauliflower rice and with the addition of cilantro you still get a “Mexican Food” flair. Celebrate Taco Tuesday by putting the ingredients in cassava tortillas or lettuce wraps!
