How to Make Marvelous Cheesy Mexican Skillet


  • 2Gather your ingredients.
  • 3Add the ground chorizo and chuck to a skillet over medium heat.
  • 4Thoroughly cook, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • 5Chef’s Note: Use a wooden spoon to break the meat into small bits.
  • 6Chef’s Note: Drain off any excess grease, if there is any.
  • 7Add the taco seasoning.
  • 8Chef’s Note: If you’re looking for a good taco seasoning, you might want to try this: Andy's Taco Seasoning
  • 9Stir until fully combined, about 1 minute.
  • 10Chef’s Note: I’m not adding any additional salt because my taco seasoning has enough.
  • 11Add the chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, garlic, and tomato sauce.
  • 12Stir until combined.
  • 13Allow the mixture to lightly simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  • 14Add the lime juice and stir to combine.
  • 15Chef’s Note: You could make this a one-pan meal; however, I prefer to cook the ingredients in a larger pan, and then transfer them to a smaller serving pan. In my case, that would be a small cast-iron skillet.
  • 16Add the cheese to the top.
  • 17Finish under the broiler, until the cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown.
  • 19Serve with some nice warm flour tortillas. Enjoy.
  • 20Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
