Skillet Tacos

This recipe 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 my new 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 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.

  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
