Easy Taco Skillet

From Our Kitchen To Yours
After being gone for the weekend and spending yesterday on the Eastern Shore for work, I wanted something that was quick and easy to make for dinner. Since I had most of the ingredients on hand, I decided to give Sweet Treats and More Simple Turkey Taco Skillet a try. The dish came together in no time and was quite tasty. I'm already looking forward to the leftovers tonight!
Easy Taco Skillet
Recipe adapted from Sweet Treats and More


1/2 lb lean ground turkey
1 heaping tablespoon taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chunky salsa - I used Trader Joe's Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa (my new fav)
1 ear of corn - cut off the cob
1 packet of Trader Joe's Frozen Organic Brown Rice
Mexican cheese
Romaine Lettuce
Toppings of choice: sour cream, gauc, more salsa, tortilla chips
  • Brown the ground turkey in a large skillet until cooked through. Drain if needed.
  • Stir in taco seasoning, water, salsa, and corn and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed. While this is simmering, cook the rice according to the package directions. 
  • Add cooked rice to the skillet and stir to combine. Sprinkle with cheese and cover to let the cheese melt.
  • Serve on a bed of lettuce with your favorite Mexican toppings.
