Add coconut cream, chili powder, cumin, ancho chipotle chili, salt and pepper. Turn stove-top to medium-high heat until slightly thickened. Remove skillet from heat and turn off stove-top.
  8. Add contents of the skillet, chicken chunks, cauliflower, crumbled bacon, and cilantro to a large bowl and stir together carefully to avoid mashing cauliflower.
  9. Put the contents of the bowl back in the skillet or in 9x13 pan.
