This quick and easy One Dish Mexican Skillet is sure to become a family favorite! Ready in about 20 minutes, this recipe is perfect to serve on it’s own or as a taco filling.
Our family loves Mexican food, not too spicy, but the all the deep flavors are delicious. I always add Mexican to our Menu Plan each week, for us it’s Wednesday. Whether I serve a full meal like Mexican Macaroni and Cheese with chips and salsa, an easy Taco Bar with all the fixins’ or even a Southwestern Salad, there are rarely leftovers.
This Mexican Skillet was no exception, we all loved it. The dish has all the flavors of a great taco, but in an easy to fix one dish method.
We served it with corn chips, but you could also use it as a filling for tacos or quesadillas.
