1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more if needed

2 jalapeņos, thinly sliced
1/4 c. freshly chopped cilantro
1 c. shredded cheddar

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 5 minutes. Add garlic, oregano, and cumin and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.

2. Put grated cauliflower in a clean dishtowel and twist to drain excess liquid.

3. Add a splash more oil to skillet if it seems dry, then add drained grated cauliflower and season with salt and pepper.

4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes, then add tomato paste and stir until combined. Stir in chicken, black beans, corn, tomatoes, jalapeños, and cilantro.

5. Top with cheeses and cover with lid to let melt, 2 minutes.

Serve with limes.
