Easy Taco Skillet Dinner

Easy Taco Skillet Dinner - Serve as is or tuck it into Tacos or Burritos. Quick, too.

Some of you might remember I made a one pan Porcupine Skillet Dinner a few weeks ago. It was surprisingly good. It inspired me to see if I could do the same thing with a Mexican style meal. And so my Easy Taco Skillet Dinner was born.

Cowboy Beans – Frijoles Charros Instant Pot

Frijoles Charros: tender, slightly smoky beans flavored with bacon & onion; there's a bit of a kick, they're smokey, saucy and sassy at the same time.

When I lived in the Southwest, I used to miss “Baked Beans.” It seemed that anytime I ate out and ordered beans as a side, they were either Cowboy Beans – Frijoles Charros, or some kind of Barbecued Baked Beans. Now that I’m in the Midwest, I miss those Cowboy Beans. Go figure, huh?

Our Family’s Favorite Tacos

Our family's taco - make with a home-made classic seasoning or with our smokin' chipotle taco seasoning.

Unless you grew up around Mexican food, chances are your first introduction to it was probably the ground beef taco. And maybe you make them for your family – they’re fast, easy & everyone seems to love them from kids to kids at heart. I make a few different kinds of ground beef tacos, but these are our fave.
