Beef, Casserole

One Pot Cheesy Taco Skillet

Our beloved Philadelphia Eagles are going to the Super Bowl!!! For the last couple of games, we’ve had what my daughter calls “Family dinner” to eat during the games. It’s really just appetizers – ring bologna and cheese, potato skins, hummus and veggies – snack food. I wanted to still be able to enjoy the game, but have some a little more like dinner. I found this recipe for a one-pot meal and I was sold. We love tacos and figured this would be a way to get my kids to eat some veggies too.

It was so easy to make and we all loved it. I served it on top of tortilla chips, like nachos; but it could easily work in taco shells, over rice or lettuce.

One Pot Cheesy Taco Skillet | Join Us, Pull up a Chair
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, diced
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup diced red pepper
12 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 1/2 cup diced zucchini
2 Tbsp taco seasoning
3 cups spinach, roughly chopped
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar and jack cheese
green onions, sliced

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Drain any fat and then add in the peppers, onions and zucchini. Continue to cook until the vegetables are starting to become tender. Add in the diced tomatoes and taco seasoning; stir until combined. If you need a little liquid to combine the taco seasoning, add up to 1 tablespoon of water.

Mix in the chopped spinach and cook until it has wilted. Flatten the mixture in the skillet and cover with the shredded cheese. Allow to melt and then serve. Sprinkle with green onions.
