Anything Mexican is always a hit at home. Even my little one eats without any tantrum. So I always sneek in veggies into the dish. I end up making this healthy ground beef recipe every time I clean up my refrigerator and want to use leftover veggies.

Ingredients for Easy and Quick Ground Beef Skillet

The list of ingredients is not limited to what I have used in this recipe. You can swap or add in what ever you have in hand.

Ground beef: Lean ground beef has a lower fat percentage and considered to be healthy. You can swap ground beef with ground turkey or ground chicken if that’s what is available to you.

Veggies: I have added Tomatoes, Bell peppers, and zucchini. I am kind of partial for colored bell peppers, it makes a dish vibrant and appealing. Along with veggies, you can also add corn, beans to it, if you are not on a low carb/keto diet. Veggies and bean not only increase the nutritional value, but it also makes the dish filling.

Seasoning: To keep it simple and easy, I have used Taco seasoning. I am sure most of us keep Taco seasoning handy. If not you can make your own Mexican seasoning blend and use. To maximize the flavour there is onion and garlic as well.

Toppings: I love Cilantro in Mexican dishes. It ads freshness to the dish. Other favorite toppings would be sour cream, cheese, avocado etc.

Steps to make Mexican Ground beef Recipe

Step 1 & 2: Brown the meat and then add onion, garlic, and taco seasoning. Sauté until it is aromatic. Then add tomato and cook until the meat is cooked through.

Step 3: The last step is to add veggies. Cook for 2 minutes. We are not going to cook the veggies all the way through. Peppers and zucchini need to be just tender yet crispy. Just look how colorful and vibrant it looks.

Step 4: Mix the veggies with the beef well and serve it in a bowl with a dollop of sour cream on top. Sour cream adds another dimension when had with the beef.

    I used 1 1/4 cups sliced grape tomatoes because that is what I had. Added 1 teaspoon of dried cilantro with the other ingredients because I didn’t have any fresh. Added 1 cup of defrosted frozen corn. Dissolved a beef bouillon cube in about a half cup of water, put that in the skillet, covered, turned to low and cooked until the vegetables were tender. Served over white rice I had leftover from another meal. Already on a recipe card in my recipe box

    My favorite taco seasoning to use is the Taco Bell packets, so that is what I used. I loved this recipe. I will be making it again… it is super good to add mix in half a jar of the white queso too.
