I confess. I’m on a taco kick.
I know I just did a taco meat recipe post, but this Skillet Ground Beef Taco Recipe is good and unique so I had to share.
Have you ever had skillet tacos? I hadn’t, and then I discovered this Skillet Ground Beef Taco Recipe online and it looked like it was worth a try. I made a few changes to the recipe, and I wasn’t disappointed.
This is a great dinner if you want a twist on traditional tacos. It’s also really nice if you want a one-skillet meal.
We sometimes make this Skillet Ground Beef Taco Recipe along with the taco meat recipe I shared earlier. That way, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the mood for traditional tacos or tacos with a twist – you’re covered.
