The Taste of Tacos in One Skillet

This is a delicious one dish meal. The recipe I am giving is the basic recipe but you can add all your favorite taco topping on top or serve it with a Mexican salad (like fajitas) with guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, and lettuce. Would also be good served with corn or a side of black beans. This meal is simple to cook and requires only a few ingredients. It takes less than 30 minutes to cook and is a meal your whole family can enjoy.
