Craving tacos or tex mex, but trying to keep your family on a low carb lifestyle? I am all about simple meals and one pot or skillet recipes that hide in veggies for my kids. So I came up with this cheese ground beef taco skillet.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 lbs lean ground beef (93/7 or 90/10 drained)
  • 150g or 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 350g or 2 medium bell peppers, chopped
  • 500g or 2 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 1 15oz can diced tomatoes, no salt added
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning (or make your own with our recipe here)
  • 4 C fresh kale, loosely packed
  • (optional) 1/2 tsp or to taste cumin (I get pretty heavy-handed with this)
  • 1 1/2 C shredded cheese (Mexican blend if possible)

Instructions

  1. In a large pan, brown ground beef, and drain excess fat. (you may have done this on prep day - bravo!)
  2. Add onions, peppers, and zucchini and cook until desired tenderness. (I did 10ish minutes)
  3. Add tomatoes and taco seasoning.
  4. Add kale, and let fully wilt.
  5. Mix well, and add additional cumin if desired - come on, be bold!
  6. Cover with cheese, and let cheese melt.
  7. Guys, this is even BETTER the next day - I recommend you make this for your lunches 🙂

Notes

Modifications:

Vegetarian: If you're looking for a great way to make your veggies into a delicious, Mexican, cheesy dish, this will be perfect without the beef.

Gluten Free:  You should be safe with this one, just mind your taco seasoning or make your own.

Dairy Free: It'll be a "Taco Skillet" but yes! Skip the cheese or sub for a non-dairy version.
