Spicy Taco Skillet

April 22, 2019

This is a one pot dish and it was a hit!  It’s easy and healthy.  What a great combination!  This dish is a perfect weeknight dish.   I didn't put the red chili in since my kids were going to be eating it.  I'm sure it would have added even more flavor to the dish.  


A friend referred me to this new app called Kitchen Stories & it is a neat one.  They have interesting new recipes to try.  This is where this recipe came from.
