One Pan Taco Dish

Oops!! I forgot to take something out for dinner this morning, so as soon as I got home I took out a pound of ground beef. It is easy to defrost in the microwave (which I HATE doing) and there are tons of quick meals you can make with it. Well I was hoping to make tacos, but unfortunately I only had two tortilla wraps…so I turned to which has tons of quick, easy meals to make. (I am spoiling this 9 month pregnant body by getting a massage tonight so I wanted something quick).

Well I put in ground beef and found a “One Pan Taco” recipe (which is REALLY similar to my mother in laws famous taco salad – just a warm version!). It said it only took 15 minutes to prepare so I was game!! Well it turned out great, so now I will share with you!! J
