One Pan Taco Skillet

Get ready to throw everything in a pan and call it Taco Tuesday! This one pan taco skillet is on the table in less than thirty minutes, and the kids think I’m the coolest when I let them scoop it up with tortilla chips 😄

This meal is super versatile, so feel free to substitute ground chicken or turkey for the beef, or leave it out all together for a vegan meal. You can also throw in whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand- anything goes!
