Home Beef Skillet Tacos

Skillet Tacos

by Laura

This recipe for skillet tacos is a quick and easy dinner that you can whip together in 20 minutes.  It is also easy on the wallet.  Estimated cost for this is $1.46 per serving.  I found it in an issue of  Taste of Home.  It was first on my list to make after perusing the issue.  I altered the recipe slightly to fit my families tastes. It was a hit!

Another reason this recipe for skillet tacos caught my eye is because it is similar to a couple of recipes that are family favorites.  The recipe looked like a Mexican twist on the recipe I have that I call Hubby’s Favorite Casserole.  Obviously, it is my hubby’s fav.  Since he loves Mexican, I knew he’d love this one.  It is also similar to the Beef  Taco Bake recipe that I have which is also a family favorite.  Give it a try on a busy night and you’ll have dinner in a flash.

Yum! I can’t wait to try this! We don’t do beef, but I think I could use the soy crumbles and get a similar result!
