Cowboy Caviar Cauliflower Rice Bowl

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.


Here’s another crazy-easy and tasty recipe that we’ve made non-stop lately. It only requires three ingredients– ok, technically, four because you do not want to miss out on the guacamole– and comes together in no time at all. (You can also make this meal ahead of time and just reheat it, which is what we do for a super fast weeknight dinner.)


This recipe combines one of my newest obsessions, Trader Joe’s jarred Cowboy Caviar, with ground beef, cauliflower rice (also, obsessed), and a big ol’ scoop of guacamole, which, in my opinion totally MAKES the meal. I hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Cowboy Caviar Cauliflower Rice Bowl

  • Author: Tina


Makes 4 Servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 jar (13 ounces) Trader Joe’s Cowboy Caviar
  • 16 ounces riced cauliflower
  • guacamole (optional, but highly recommended)


  1. Cook ground beef in a pan on the stove top; break up meat as it cooks. When almost fully browned, add Cowboy Caviar to the pan. Heat for a few minutes.
  2. Remove Cowboy Caviar meat mixture from stove and transfer it to a separate bowl/plastic storage container. Use the same pan and leftover fat from ground beef to cook cauliflower rice until translucent and lightly browned, but not mushy.
  3. When cauliflower rice is finished cooking, serve with Cowboy Caviar + ground beef and a scoop of guacamole.

  1. There is nothing better than a meal that comes together in a flash with minimal ingredients. I love how you use Trader Joe’s gems to make this dish. The perfect on the go meal!

  2. I’m curious about the cauliflower rice. Do you buy it or rice it yourself? Do you use a box grater? Thanks!

  3. These are the best recipes ever! I still make your ground meat, shredded brussel sprouts, feta dish all of the time!
    Love that this one skips the cheese too!

  4. So was Murphy not interested in the food, or was he pouting because he wanted it and couldn’t have it? 🙂 I have cauliflower rice at home but not the other ingredients; I have a meeting tonight just behind TJ’s so I might have to stop on my way home! Heck, I could even throw this together when I get home!

  5. OMG that looks amazing. I’ve been on a ground beef kick lately, and I’ve been meaning to look for the riced cauliflower at Trader Joe’s! Definitely making this ASAP!

  6. Ah! Just 4 ingredients?? This recipe look DIVINE and easy enough for me to make! Thanks for sharing. Plus, this gives me an excuse to go to Trader Joe’s again 🙂

  7. Oh Man, this is my favorite. I use Turkey instead of beef and my own veggies and sauce but I need to get some Cowboy Caviar. That makes it So Easy!

  8. So funny – I literally made the same thing for dinner last night! I add onions to the cauliflower rice along with a bit of chicken broth (because sometimes cauliflower rice is a bit bland for me) – but your simple recipe is legit! LOVE Cowboy Caviar (ps, it’s good on fish tacos, too – try it!)

  9. Tina,
    Looks delicious. Quick question. Did you use the frozen or refrigerator riced cauliflower? I have found in some recipes using frozen v.s fridge has made a difference. I’m thinking this one does not matter but wanted to check…Can’t wait to try it out.

  10. Just went to trader joe’s, thought about this post, and picked up ground beef and the cowboy caviar! So excited because I haven’t really been inspired to cook lately–thanks! 🙂 I’ve found that cauliflower rice doesn’t quite sit right with me ( boo 🙁 ) so this will go on a quinoa/spinach bowl instead!
