Then top with chicken, sautéed bell pepper, and sour cream. Enjoy as a quick keto lunch or dinner – especially when you meal prep all the ingredients ahead of time.Often, I will make the keto Mexican rice ahead of time.

    Riced Cauliflower

You can find it in the produce section or the frozen foods section of the grocery store.It’s more cost effective to make your own cauliflower rice from a whole head of cauliflower. Take a whole cauliflower and cut off the stem and cut into large chunks. Use a cheese grater or food processer to chop into rice pieces.

    Chicken Options

Or get a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.I have also used leftover keto chicken schnitzel for these low carb fajita bowls. It’s a way to have crispy chicken tenders on your rice bowl. To reheat the chicken schnitzel, bake it in the oven for 7-8 minutes or use an air fryer at 400 degrees for 5 minutes to reheat. This will help crisp up the chicken.crispy chicken slices on fajita low carb bowl
