one pot wonder...

Image result for image of cheesy taco skilletLoved this and it was not difficult to make. As the dish is filled with vegetables, it is quite healthy. Brian ate his in a burrito and I topped mine on lettuce. There are a lot of leftovers if you're making this for two.

  • 2 bell peppers, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis

  2. Drain excess fat.

  8. When cheese is melted, serve over a bed of lettuce, rice, or in a taco or burrito!
