Mexican Cauliflower

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by ChefDebs

This is so tasty, I could quite easily eat this as a main dish with nothing else. It is a variation of my Spanish cauliflower recipe, with a little kick.

We are really making an effort to eat more veggies, and I have to say cauliflower isn't one of our favorites. But I tried this - because we do like Mexican - and WOW. This was my first time using fresh cauliflower and it was fun (it turns out my cat likes the cauliflower greens, go figure). I subbed Smart Balance Light for the butter and used Ritz crackers - other than that, followed the recipe exactly. I still cannot believe that both my husband and I gobbled this up - thanks so much for making eating healthy so yum.
