Skillet Tacos -With Six Serving Options

I've been going through a bit of a taco seasoning phase, trying to use it in different and new (to me) ways... One of the things I made was this Skillet Taco Meal, think of it as deconstructed tacos. What I like best is the serving options: It can be served in the skillet by stirring in cut or torn tortillas, in bowls as pictured, or with a Fritos crunchy topping, spooned into hard taco shells, wrapped in flour tortillas, or as a dip with chips. It also freezes beautifully, making it perfect for work lunches or a quick appetizer for unexpected guests. Use whatever beans you would like or have on hand. I chose the recipe I started with simply because I happened to have a can of tomato soup in the closet, it worked out well. Don't hesitate to try this folks, I think it will appeal to most:@)

~Zucchini Season~
Have a zucchini to use up?
Small dice and add it right in.
My only suggestion, 
you may want to use a low sodium taco seasoning if that's better for your diet.

One Skillet Taco Meal-adapted from Kroll's Korner
1 lb ground turkey-I used ground beef
2 Tblsp olive oil-I omitted
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 1/2 C salsa
15 oz can beans-black, kidney, pinto, etc, drained and rinsed
10 oz can tomato soup
5-10 tortillas, either torn for stirring into meat, or whole for wrapping the meat
Alternate: hard taco shells, tortilla chips for dipping, or Frito type corn chips as a crunchy topping
Taco toppers: cheese, lettuce, black olives, pickled jalapenos, sour cream, etc, for serving
  1. Brown meat in olive oil if using, drain any excess fat.
  2. Add onion cook for a few minutes, add garlic, cook for a couple more minutes.
  3. Add taco seasoning, salsa, beans and soup, mix well. Heat through for 10 minutes.
  4. At this point, depending upon how you'd like to serve this, you can stir in the tortillas. But I suggest folks do that at the table. That way, leftovers stay nice. Maybe some want to save a few calories and omit the tortillas, serve in bowl topped with lettuce, etc.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
