Not Your Typical Beans & (Cauliflower) “Rice”

Steak, Beans & "Rice" with a Fresh Tomatillo Salsa

I’ve never worked with tomatillos before let alone had one and now I can’t to have them again. The salsa is tart, light, but not too sour all in one.

(Don’t believe me? See here.) Toss in all fresh ingredients and some agave nectar to have a Four Ingredient Margaritas — a lighter take on the classic drink.
