Mom’s One Pan Taco Skillet is one of the easiest weeknight meals and a dinner everyone is sure to love!

One Pan Taco Skillet was one of my mom’s go to dinner recipes when we were growing up in the house. Now, it’s turned into a staple here in my house! 

Reasons why it’s such a keeper recipe:

  • Easy to make
  • Everyone always loves it
  • You can have most ingredients already stocked and in your pantry
  • It’s a balanced meal along with a salad or grilled veggie
  • It’s satisfying

Different beans (besides the kidney beans) you can add to this meal:

  • Black beans
  • Pinto Beans
  • Black Eyed Pea
  • Navy beans

I love this meal not only because it is quick but it is budget friendly as well. Cutting the flour tortilla strips up into the meal is recommended, but if you’d like to control the amount of tortilla you are consuming, skip this step and eat the tortilla on the side! 🙂
