Hey y’all! As requested I have a quick and easy dinner recipe for you. I’m going to show you how to make a easy and delicious tex mex ground beef skillet! This dish is perfect if you’re pushing for time, and want something made within 30 minutes. Not only is this meal easy on your time, but it’s easy on your pockets as well. I use super affordable ingredients such as ground beef, rice, corn, and beans. Most of the ingredients used, if not all, you probably already have on hand!
The ground beef that I used was regular ground beef. You can use lean if you choose. If you decide to use regular ground beef like I did, be sure to drain all of the fat once the meat if browned. If you’re not a fan of beef, feel free to replace it with ground turkey.
I used a can of low sodium Rotel for this recipe. You can use a generic brand, or regular canned tomatoes if you’d like. Just make sure that you drain the liquid from the can before adding the tomatoes into the dish.
If you’re not a fan of black beans you can use red beans, or pinto beans. You can also leave the beans out altogether if you’d like.
