Serves 6
This one shot to the top of “our favorites” list. It’s loaded with flavor, vegetables, and a little “gotcha.” If you like it extra spicy add some fresh jalapenos to the toppings.

    I do not do spicy well so I substituted the hot sauce/buffalo sauce with BBQ sauce- it was delicious!!!

      Thanks for the idea! Hadn’t thought about that. We’ll have to give it a try!

    Made this the other night. It was wonderful. I grilled the chicken before placing it on the cauliflower. The left overs were also great the next day for lunch. Thanks for the great recipe.

      You’re welcome! It’s one of our favorite. We make a similar recipe with ground beef as well!
