I love when I can find an easy meal that not only takes me fifteen minutes to make but also a meal that my family falls head over heels in love with.

This 15-minute Taco Dinner Skillet is both. I discovered this delicious recipe when I was creating my e-cookbook (which you can find here!). It is full of 15-minute dinners, and this one is definitely a keeper!

It's so versatile in that you can change the meat around and it still turns out delicious. The possibilities are endless. For example, you can use chicken, ground turkey, sliced or shredded beef, ground pork — even shrimp would be tasty in this one-pot meal.

You can add any taco toppings you want to this dish. That is what makes it so easy to prepare.

Not only that but if you are feeling soft taco shells or hard taco shells, you can serve this right alongside some tortilla chips and turn it into a dip or an appetizer.

This Taco Dinner skillet has ground beef, peppers, onions, green onions- and if you want, you can sneak in other veggies like spinach or zucchini, even corn if you'd like.

If you prefer, you can also keep this low carb and not even use any tortillas or taco shells at all.

Being able to make healthier meals for my family in 15 minutes or less has been a goal of mine for over a year. As much as I love cooking, I don't like being in the kitchen for loooong periods of time.

So — I set out on a journey to make as many meals as I could in 15 minutes or less, which is how I came up with creating a cookbook with my daughter that is FULL of delicious 15-minute recipes.

My daughter and I worked hard for about 3 months, making these yummy recipes to share with y'all and this one is definitely a family favorite!
