Spanish Cauliflower Rice (Keto, Vegan, Vegetarian)

Hi everyone! This is one of my favorite “cauliflower rice” recipes. I made this a lot when I did the ketogenic diet and still make it pretty regularly.

This is a delicious combo of riced cauliflower, jalapeño, onions, bell peppers, seasonings, and lime juice
