Servings 4


  • 1 medium head cauliflower cut into small florets
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil divided
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. taco seasoning homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 3 tsp. adobo sauce from canned chipotle peppers
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 15.5-oz. can black beans, undrained
  • 3/4 cup canned fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen/thawed fire-roasted corn I like Trader Joe's brand
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime

Jalapeño Ranch

  • 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 small jalapeño seeds and ribs removed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh dill
  • 1 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Optional toppings/garnishes

  • chopped iceberg or romaine lettuce, shaved radish, sliced avocado, fresh cilantro, cotija cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with 2 Tbsp of the oil and taco seasoning. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet, avoiding any overlap; bake for 30 to 35 minutes, tossing once halfway through, until tender and charred in some spots.
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, cook until slightly softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic, adobo sauce, and cumin; cook 1 minute, stirring often. Add black beans, tomatoes, and corn; simmer until liquid reduces, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in lime zest and juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Prepare Jalapeño Ranch by combining all dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor; process until smooth.
  • Prepare bowls by dividing black bean mixture evenly into each of 4 bowls. Top evenly with cauliflower and additional toppings of choice. Drizzle Jalapeño Ranch dressing overtop.
