For this particular recipe, I decided to use the cauliflower medley since it has peas which my boys love. That said, any variety of Riced Veggies works!

Cooking Green Giant Riced Veggies on Stove

Keeping a bag or two stocked in your freezer is not only a huge time saver at dinner but it also cuts down on food waste since it is less perishable than fresh veggies. To cook the Riced Veggies, I simply drizzle a little olive oil in a hot pan and sauté until the cauliflower is fully warmed through and tender.

The light, almost rice-like texture of the cauliflower is the ultimate base for this flavor-packed Mexican steak fajita bowl. Flank steak is my go-to for this recipe but chicken or pork would work well too.

You could even skip the meat entirely and just load up on the veggies!

Of course, the best part about fajitas is the toppings so load up your bowl! We love piling ours high with pickled onions, guacamole, pico de gallo and jalapeño slices but this is where you can get creative and make it your own.
