Low Carb Mexican Skillet

This one pan, ready in 30-minutes LOW CARB MEXICAN SKILLET featuring Palmini rice is a must make! It’s a no fuss dish that’s perfect for a busy weeknight, or great for meal prepping.

The Palmini hearts of palm rice replaces traditional rice, keeping this meal low carb. One of my favorite things about cooking with Palmini is that it takes on the flavor of whatever you’re cooking. It’s also very easy and quick to prepare, so it saves you a ton of time in the kitchen!

And as always, shred your cheese fresh off the block. It melts better and tastes better. I cannot stress this enough!
