- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the Enchilada Sauce:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
- 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the Bowl:
- Cauliflower rice (cooked as per package instructions)

- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Sour cream and sliced avocado for topping
Let’s Get Cooking:
- Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) to get it ready.
- Prepare the Chicken: Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl. Rub this delicious mixture all over the chicken breasts. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add a touch of olive oil and cook the chicken for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until they’re cooked through. Once done, let them rest for a few minutes before slicing or shredding.
- Time for the Enchilada Sauce: Using the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and toss in 2 minced garlic cloves. Sauté them for a minute until they smell amazing. Now, sprinkle in 1 tablespoon of chili powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano, and a little cayenne pepper for some kick. Stir these spices for another minute. Pour in a can of diced tomatoes (juices and all) and let everything simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Give it some love with salt and pepper to taste. If you’ve got an immersion blender, great! Blend everything into a smooth sauce. Otherwise, you can transfer the mixture to a regular blender for the same magic.
- Assemble Your Bowl: Grab your favorite bowl and start with a cozy bed of cauliflower rice. Place those lovely slices or shreds of chicken on top. Pour a good helping of your homemade enchilada sauce over the chicken. Now, get creative with colors: add shredded lettuce, diced bell peppers, and diced onions. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and a generous handful of shredded cheddar cheese on this masterpiece. Top it off with a dollop of sour cream and some slices of creamy avocado.
