Chicken Skillet Taco's
Take taco night to a new level with this one pan dish that is easy on clean up and HUGE on flavor. This healthy dish is low in fat with chicken, some sausage, and a load of veggies that, if you don't tell your kids, is actually good for them. I pack spinach, zucchini, red and green peppers into the mix and to control the heat I also make my own taco seasoning.
Healthy Alternative.
For the fun factor you eat this with a romaine lettuce leaf so you could say it is gluten free. No dirty dishes tonight. You will see how to make this on Sunday on my you tube channel
