One-pot Veggie Mexican Skillet (Two Ways!)

You won’t need Chipotle ever again after making this easy, customizable Mexican skillet recipe. This recipe was a result of a massive craving I was having for Mexican food one night. Specifically for guacamole. I could have just eaten an entire container of guac with chips (let’s be real), but knew I needed a more substantial, nutritious dinner. Thus, this delicious recipe was born which I still topped with #alltheguac.

Originally, I made this recipe in the vegetarian version with just a can of beans. Since then, I have experimented with it and substituted cooked and shredded chicken. Both versions are fantastic! Packed with veggies and lean protein and I bet you already have most of these ingredients on hand. Plus, there’s only one pot you need to wash. Winning. Oh, and it’s fantastic with a homemade margarita.
