Creamy Guacamole Riced Cauliflower (Paleo + Whole30)

I love Mexican food but also have a sensitive stomach towards things like night shades and legumes – this can sometimes be challenging when all I want to order is the chicken fajitas with peppers and onions and a big bowl of black bean soup.  I’ll be honest in saying I’ve learned the hard way when it comes to overlooking my food sensitivities.  

In an effort to have a side dish with Mexican flare, I have created this creamy and flavorful recipe!
