One pot dishes make clean up a cinch at meal time. That is exactly what I have for you today. Plus, this beef fajita skillet ready in under 30 minutes!
This is a skillet version of beef fajitas. I used ground beef to keep it simple. It also uses instant rice. This is what helps get it to the table in under 30 minutes. I did use instant brown rice and guess what? My family had no idea that it was brown rice! I love being able to sneak in extra nutrition.
I am a Canbassador for Cans Get You Cooking and my “cantry” also helped make this dish come together quickly. Canned goods help save on prep time. They make homemade easy!
This recipe uses canned tomatoes and beef broth, both items I always keep on hand in my “cantry”. Plus, cans are recyclable! Did you know that they are the most recycled containers in America today?
