Recipe | Cheesy Taco Skillet


People usually ask me what I’m cooking and how did I prepare some of the meals I share on my social media accounts. And the truth is I never really know. My husband will ask me, how long I cooked something before only to receive a blank stare back from me. Silly I know. But, I get in the kitchen, I feel like everything says turn to over between 375-400, and usually 20-30ish minutes! Hilarious! Reading this sounds so silly, so I am working on it. But what you will never have is under cooked food at my home.

Anyway, I am trying to do better and actually pay attention to the time and settings of the oven or stove.

Below you will find the recipe for my cheese taco skillet. As I try to low carb it for a little while, I am trying to be creative in my choices. This one was pretty good. I even added sour cream to it a couple of days and I didn’t even miss nachos or a taco shell.

Good luck on your dish!

  1. 1 lb of ground turkey
  2. 1 large yellow onion, diced
  3. 2 bell peppers, diced
  4. taco seasoning (season to taste/ I used less than half of the package)
  5. 1/2 cup shredded cheddar and jack cheese
  6. 1 can diced tomatoes (optional- my dish does not have tomatoes)
  1. In a large pan, lightly brown ground beef and crumble well. Drain excess fat.
  2. Add onions and peppers, and cook until browned.
  3. Add canned tomatoes (if you are using them), taco seasoning, and any water needed for taco seasoning to evenly coat mixture
  4. Mix well
  5. Cover with shredded cheese and let cheese melt.
  6. When cheese is melted, serve over a bed of lettuce, rice, in a taco or burrito OR on wedges of bell peppers.
  1. I meant to add spinach to my mix, but I forgot. Add some to yours after the taco seasoning. Let them wilt fully
