  1. Is there a non-spicy ingredient you would recommend I can use in place of the red chilies for my 5-year-old son? This looks delicious.

  2. I just made this for dinner tonight and it was SO good. I used cayenne powder instead of red chili’s and stevia as the sweetener but it was still really good. Instead of Cauliflower rice I served it on a plate beside some loaded cauliflower mash and it worked well. Thanks for the great recipe.
