Cheesy Nacho Skillet

It's been a while since I've made this dish and I've been craving Mexican but wanted something simple so I decided to make this yummy skillet. It's packed with flavor, low cal, and makes the perfect weeknight dinner!

Cheesy Nacho Skillet
Serves 8
Cal 256, Carbs 24.8, Fat 9.1, Fiber 1.2, Protein 19.1

16 oz lean ground beef
1/2 cup Southwest Chipotle Cooking Creme
4 cups cooked rice (I use whole grain brown rice)
1 15 oz can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can chopped green chilies
1/2 cup fat free black beans, drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided (I used reduced fat)
3 tbsp taco seasoning
2 cups tortilla chips

Cook ground beef in large nonstick skillet, drain. Add in your taco seasoning.

Stir in cooking creme, rice, tomatoes, green chilies, half of the cheddar cheese, and black beans.

Cook on low heat for 10 minutes. Stirring often. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 min. Top with tortilla chips. Enjoy!


  1. This looks wonderful and I love that it is diet friendly. Do you think ground chicken would work in this?

  2. That looks amazing! I'll just take that and head on into the living room ;)
