Tools Needed:

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Notes

Pro Tip: Drain, drain, drain! Frozen cauliflower releases a lot of water. Do not skip draining it. You may even want to press it to squeeze out as much water as possible so that your easy taco casserole is not watery.
