Place the 1-pound chicken and 1 ½ cup salsa in the slow cooker. Cook for 4 hours on high heat or 6 hours on low.

Once ready, shred between two forks prior to serving.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Then, add the 4 cups of riced cauliflower and sauté for 5 minutes until the cauliflower is heated through and tender.

Once ready, add in 1 cup of chopped cilantro. Stir to combine and turn off the heat.

Assemble the dish by placing the cauliflower rice in the serving bowls as the base. Then, top it with the shredded salsa chicken.

For a more delicious result, add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 4 ounces of guacamole, 4 ounces of sliced black olives, sour cream, and additional cilantro.
