Mexican Ground Beef Quinoa Skillet

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by bmcnichol

This is an easy weeknight meal my family enjoys. If you like it spicer, you can add tomatoes with chilis.

So easy and so delish! I didn't have cumin or chili powder, so I added a packet of McCormick's taco seasoning instead. I also opted for ground turkey breast instead of ground beef. Served it with sour cream and grated cheddar on top, and a piece of cornbread on the side. Yummy!
