With over 200 easy and delicious dinner ideas, you'll never have to worry about what to make for dinner again.

I like to cook this in my cast iron skillet because it’s easy to move from the stovetop to the oven but you can cook this in any oven proof skillet. If you’re not sure your skillet is oven proof then I suggest you cook the ground beef on the stove top and combine everything into a casserole dish. It’s just one little extra step.

Mexican and Tex-Mex flavored dishes are some of my families’ favorite meals. I love making these because they are often easy to cook and made with budget friendly ingredients. To see two of my favorite Mexican dishes check out my Taco Casserole and my Fast and Easy Quesadillas.

If you want to make this skillet dinner a little lighter on calories cut back on the amount of tortilla chips you use and serve over lettuce.

I hope you love this recipe for Simple Mexican Skillet as mush as we do. I’ll be back soon with another great recipe to help you get dinner on the table for your family.
