One Pan Mexican Skillet

This gluten-free (dairy-free optional) flavorful ONE PAN MEXICAN SKILLET is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight! I used ground beef, but you can easily swap for ground turkey if that’s your jam. And if you want to add cheese, I fully recommend shredding it off the block. It’ll melt better, and tastes 1000% better than pre-shredded packaged cheese. Just sprinkle it over the top before the tortilla chips, cover, and it’ll melt in a few minutes. Save this recipe to dish out later!

SIDE NOTE: Make sure the rice you use can be cooked in 15 minutes. This is important!
