Super simple and delicious Turkey Taco Skillet is a one-pan meal packed with all the flavors you love in a taco made in 30 minutes.
These days my mind is in overdrive with my never ending list of things that I want to get done in a day. Of course, I don’t ever finish the day’s list, because I keep adding to it so by the time someone in the house asks, “What’s for dinner?” I’m done. Done for the day.
That’s where one-pan meals come into play. Simple meals that pack a flavor punch are winners. This turkey taco skillet is all of that and more. I use my homemade taco seasoning, a jar of salsa, and a few other ingredients to whip this skillet dinner up in 30 minutes. Then the only question left is, “Who’s doing the dishes?”
