A hearty and delicious Keto Mac and Cheese recipe made with cauliflower instead of pasta. Low Carb and Gluten Free.


  • 4 cups raw cauliflower florets
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped canned green chilis (mild)
  • 4 oz Mexican Chorizo (you’ll cook and use 1/3 cup for this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Spread your cauliflower out in a microwave safe casserole dish. Microwave for 10 minutes or until partially tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook your Chorizo in a small saute pan and drain off the extra fat. Measure out 1/3 cup of the cooked Chorizo for this recipe and reserve any extra for another use.
  3. Remove the cauliflower from the microwave and stir in the heavy whipping cream, butter, chopped chilis, cooked Chorizo, shredded cheddar, salt, and chopped cilantro.
  4. Once it’s fully combined, bake in a preheated 375 degree (F) oven for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is fork tender and the cheese is melted and bubbling. Serve hot.
