Jalapeno Popper Casserole

I’m back to school this week for a full five days, so I needed a Sunday casserole for leftovers. I’d like to get back on the low carb bandwagon that I fervently jumped off of this summer as well. Check it out:

Cauliflower Mashjalapeno popper casserole

  • Prep one large head of cauliflower, breaking the florets into small pieces.
  • Place in microwave safe bowl with…
    • 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
    • 1 Tablespoon of butter
  • Microwave for ten minutes, or until soft.
  • Mash cooked cauliflower with…
    • 1 seeded, chopped jalapeno
    • 4 ounces cheddar jack cheese
    • Garlic salt to taste
  • Place cauliflower in the bottom of a greased two-quart casserole dish.

– Saute one pound of chopped, boneless, skinless chicken breast. Add cooked chicken on top of cauliflower.

Jalapeno Popper Topping

  • Using an electric mixer, beat…
    • 8 ounces cream cheese
    • 1/2 cup salsa verde
    • 2 ounces cheddar jack cheese
  • Spread mixture over chicken.

Sprinkle with cheddar jack cheese and jalapeno slices. Back at 350 degrees for twenty minutes, until cheese is melted.

Yum. Yum. Yum x 10. It was even more delicious with a few slices of fresh, homegrown tomato from my garden! This was definitely rich, so it is easy to have a small serving and feel satisfied. Next time, I might use jalapeno cream cheese to give the casserole an even stronger kick!
