This is the homemade taco seasoning recipe I always use. Tastes great, real easy to mix together, and no added sugar or any other unnecessary ingredients.

I’ve used diced fresh tomatoes and canned diced tomatoes in this recipe. Both work well! If you’ve got extra fresh tomatoes from the garden, use them! Have a can of diced tomatoes on hand? Use it. You just don’t want a lot of extra liquid in there, so keep an eye on that when adding canned tomatoes. You can even use the canned tomatoes with the green chilies if you want some extra spice!

Speaking of spice, we like to keep it more on the mild side for my kiddos, so 2 1/2 to 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning and no green chilies works well for us. If you want more though, go with 3 tablespoons seasoning, add some green chilies or jalapenos, and use Mexican blend cheese or pepper jack. Adapt it to suit your taste! Easy peasy.

I usually just use a bag of frozen riced cauliflower, but you can also use fresh riced cauliflower. Most grocery stores carry it already-riced now, in the frozen veggie section or in the fresh produce area. Just dump the riced cauliflower into the skillet, straight from the freezer or fresh. Everything about this skillet dinner recipe is easy!

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins
Yield: 5 cups | Serves: 4


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/3 cup diced red or green bell pepper (about half of one pepper)
  • 3 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes, fresh or canned
  • 12 ounces riced cauliflower (about 3 cups), fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef, breaking it apart, until almost cooked through but still a little pink. Add the onion and pepper, then continue cooking until ground beef is no longer pink. Stir in the taco seasoning.
  2. Add the tomatoes and cauliflower, stir to combine. Stir in chicken broth. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium low and cook until cauliflower rice begins to soften (8-10 minutes for frozen).
  3. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over top and cover for a few minutes, until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and top with your favorite taco toppings, like sour cream, olives, avocado, cilantro, more cheese, more diced tomatoes, fresh lime wedges, etc.
