Taco Skillet Salad

May 19, 2010

Eating out doors is a cinch with simple skillet taco salad.  Easy to fix and transport to the patio, oh and good too.  We enjoyed the nice Spring evening together.  First I couldn’t get the kids to come to the table until I said we are eating outside.  The little furry family members enjoyed being outside too, so I  included a few of the many poses we shot with them.

Taco Skillet Salad

1 pound ground turkey or hamburger

3 green oinons

1/2 of green bell pepper chopped

1   14 oz. can of Rotel tomatoes or just chopped tomatos

1  4 oz.can green chiles chopped

1 cup uncooked rice

1  3/4 cup water

Condiments for Salad

tortilla chips

salsa (optional)


  • Cook first 3 ingredients on med-high together in skillet until lightly browned then drain fat off.
  • Add rice, taco seasoning, canned tomatoes,peppers and water.  Cook until boils then turn heat to simmer put lid on top and stir every 5 min. for 15 minutes or until rice is tender.
