This low carb recipe will one hundred percent satiate all your nacho cravings. If you season the cauliflower generously, then you are golden. I have this listed as an appetizer but for me, this is a main entree. It’s got the beans for protein and it is beyond filling.

I used Morton + Bassett Taco Seasoning, but here are the ingredients listed on the bottle that you can throw together and use: ground cumin, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano and pepper. Of course, do not forget to also salt the cauliflower too.

Make sure your cauliflower florets are dry prior to seasoning them and toss them with the oil. Dry equals crispy. You can also air fry these beautiful white trees or make a skillet cauliflower nachos. Just follow our recipe for 10 Minute Skillet Cauliflower and sub in these nachos ingredients as seasonings and toppings.

The Pickled Red Onions are the cherry on the sundae here. The toppings are pretty much all necessary, in my opinion. If you haven’t tried Kewpie Mayo, you don’t know what you’re missing. This sauce is the best part of the entire dish.
