  3. Add back cauliflower.
  4. Add tomatoes, chicken base, cumin, chili powder & garlic and simmer until most (but not all) of the moisture has been soaked in.

Notes
  1. Don’t worry if you have leftovers. Just reheat, add a couple eggs on top and eat for breakfast.
  2. I use pickled jalapenos*-that way I don't have to touch them. This is what I do to cut them. Open the jar and stick scissors in and just keep cutting until you get to the desired size.
