More About This Recipe
  • While these days one-skillet recipes are practically a dime a dozen, you’ll find yourself disappointed that they often fall short in the flavor department. Rest assured, that’s not the case with the Tex-Mex dish thanks to fresh cilantro, red bell pepper and a small-but-mighty packet of taco seasoning. We used ground beef but ground chicken or turkey would be just as good. If you’re looking for a little more kick, you can add a few drops of hot sauce or sprinkle red pepper flakes into the skillet. Feel free to take this customizable recipe wherever you want it to go with poblano peppers, salsa, sour cream, more cheese (yes, please!), jalapenos or green chiles. Then devour it, wash your skillet and find your next skillet dinner to make tomorrow!
