Taco Skillet Recipe

Taco skillet recipe

  • Author: Jamie Sanders


This yummy Taco Skillet recipe is a family favorite meal! Tex Mex spices, ground beef, and cheese are a delicious combination. Bonus, it’s a one-pot meal, ready in 30 minutes.


  • 2 cups of chopped/shredded/ground meat (I use whatever meat I have on hand already cooked. Turkey, beef, or chicken all work.)
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning mix
  • 1 jar (16 oz) thick & chunky salsa (the original recipe called for 1 jar, but I am too cheap to use a whole jar, I just use 1/4 and it still tastes great)
  • 1 can (11 oz) corn (mexi-corn works great))
  • 2 cups cooked instant rice
  • 3 cups (+/-) beans (black or pintos work well)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese  (divided – your favorite kind)
  • optional for garnish: lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, diced avocado, green onions – whatever you like on your tacos or have in the fridge


  1. In a large skillet cook (or reheat) meat of choice.
  2. Stir in seasoning mix, rice, beans, salsa and corn, and 1 cup of cheese.
  3. Cook over medium heat until thoroughly heated.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; cover and let stand 1 to 2 minutes to melt the cheese.
  5. Serve as is, with tortilla chips, or in a tortilla and top with your favorite garnishes
