Impress your guests with this traditional Brazilian comfort food!  “Escondidinho” is a traditional Brazilian dish that has the main ingredient hidden by a creamy puree.  It is very similar to a “Shepherd’s Pie”, and the main ingredient is usually cassava or yuca.  In this Keto-friendly version, the puree is made of cauliflower and the chicken is the protagonist.  Add some grated cheese to melt if desired.  You’ll love it!
