  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 (26 ounce) container diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine 2 cups broth and cauliflower in a pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
