Although you won't be fooled into thinking that this chipotle cauliflower cheese is actually mac and cheese – it might come a close second! The cauliflower flavor isn't very strong, due to the cheese and the chipotle used. The carb count is 8g per serving, which is a little higher than some of my other meals for the serving size, but it is VERY filling! The slow cooker (or slow cooker function on your Instant Pot) makes the recipe very easy, just mix the sauce together then dump it all in with the cauliflower!

I love chipotle so much and I think I could have this if I can find a GF replacement for the cheddar soup (darn Celiac Disease). I could make my own GF cheese sauce. I will make it work somehow.

Hmmm. The carb count for this is pretty high for me, but served with a nice piece of chicken, it would make a great meal. I don't think that 11 net carbs is too much for a dinner. The combination of cheese and chipotle is very nice. Yum.

Fair point, Kim - maybe a low-medium carb dish when you need something convenient!
