- 1 pound cauliflower florets
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 cup grated Mexican cheese
- 4 slices cooked bacon crumbled
- 1/3 cup snipped chives
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cut the cauliflower into florets and add them to a microwave safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover with cling film. Microwave for 5-8 minutes, depending on your microwave, until completely cooked and tender. Drain the excess water and let sit uncovered for a minute or two.
- Add the cauliflower to a food processor and process until fluffy. Add the butter, garlic powder, and sour cream and process until it resembles the consistency of mashes potatoes. Remove the mashed cauliflower to a bowl and add most of the chives, saving some to add to the top later. Add the Mexican blend cheese and mix by hand. Season with salt and pepper.
- Top the loaded cauliflower with a handful of cheese, remaining chives and bacon. Put back into the microwave to melt the cheese or place the cauliflower under the broiler for a few minutes.
