 Faux Mexican Rice

So we wanted Mexian food tonight and I had figured out how to make healthy tacos sans tortillas but I just wanted Mexican rice too.  So I got this nifty thought to go out and look up a recipe for fake - faux call it what you want Mexican Rice but without the rice - Mexican Rice.  I found it!  I found this wonderful site to make fake starchy foods with vegetables.  Check out this link:  Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes.  It was awesome to find a selection that included my rice.  So I tried her rice and I want to share the recipe with you too.  I used some specific ingredients so I'll share those below because they will determine the food counts below.  Serves 6-1/2 cup servings.
