Quick and Easy Healthy Taco Salad

I love the taco skillet recipe so much because it is simple, quick, and easy- and I sneak in TONS of hidden veggies that not only add nutrition and flavor, but help to stretch the meal to be more affordable.

If you are going to a party you can make a big batch. People are always asking for my recipe for this taco salad and its so simple to throw together! If you arent concerned about carbs you can make this taco salad and serve it with tortilla chips or crunch them in it!
