Hi everyone! Danae from Recipe Runner and I’m back with my first guest post for 2016. I hope you guys had a wonderful holiday season and that the New Year has started out great for you. While I love the holiday season it’s nice to get back to my normal routine and eating habits. My body can only take so many cookies and chocolates before it starts to turn on me and let me know it’s had enough. By the first week in January it had definitely had enough!
Just because it’s January and many of us are trying to eat healthier doesn’t mean that we have to eat food that tastes like cardboard or lettuce all day every day. It also doesn’t have to use complicated expensive ingredients or take all day to prepare. Healthy eating can be delicious, colorful, full of flavor and easy to make. This Turkey Taco Quinoa Skillet is a perfect example of a flavorful, healthy, one pan meal that everyone in the family is sure to enjoy!
Skillet meals are one of my favorite things to make for a couple of reasons. I love that there are far less dishes to wash since washing dishes is one of my least favorite things to do along with emptying the dishwasher. I also love that there are so many options when it comes to making skillet/one pot dinners. You can make them with or without meat, pasta, rice and in this case quinoa, then it’s just a mater of adding in your favorite spices and vegetables.
Since I love Mexican food and am always looks for ways to jazz it up and keep it healthier, this Turkey Taco Quinoa Skillet was a perfect option for me. Along with ground turkey and quinoa being in this skillet meal you’ll also find a slew of Mexican spices, black beans, green chiles, corn, fire roasted tomatoes and of course it wouldn’t be complete without some melted cheese on top! It can be served as is, in tortillas for tacos or on top of your favorite greens like a taco salad. The skillet meal comes together in about 30 to 40 minutes making it a great weeknight dinner choice. Enjoy!
