Easy Taco Tuesday in a Skillet, Low Carb and Trim Healthy Mama S

If you like Mexican food, this taco Tuesday in a skillet is a must make!

As written this recipe is low carb, trim healthy mama s. My family absolutely loved it! I love coming up with new ways to enjoy Taco Tuesday. This was a fun new way to enjoy this tradition. I also hid a bag of cauliflower rice in the recipe. You don’t have to include it, but I recommend it if you need to get more veggies in you or your family’s diet and it also extends the meat as well.

I had planned on making my own tortilla chips for topping, but I ran out of time.

We were able to split one bag four ways. They aren’t cheap and I wanted it to stretch if possible. These are the closest to a regular chip I have found. Not quite a Dorito, but a great low carb, thm s option. The chips on top aren’t necessary anyway. If you don’t want to buy them or make your own, just leave them off.

A couple tips

If you want to include the cauliflower rice, my biggest tip is to add plenty of liquid. I probably used 1 cup of beef broth. I cook the rice until you can’t tell it’s there. My family isn’t really a fan of cauliflower rice. This trick really hides it and my family will eat it. If you are going to use a fatty beef, I would wait until you drain it before adding it to the skillet. My beef wasn’t fatty but I don’t know how the cauli rice will taste with all of the fast being absorbed. Finally, use your favorite toppings. All of our bowls were different but yummy!
