Why Should I Use a Cast Iron Skillet?

I love using my cast iron skillets!  I like serving dinner right out of the skillet.  Kind of rustic style.  Here are some other great benefits – A well seasoned skillet is stick free.
You can sear and move to oven with 1 pan. They are very inexpensive. They last a lifetime if properly cared for.

Tips For Salsa Verde Chicken Taco Rice Skillet

*Beef works as a great substitute for the chicken in this recipe.

*For another meal idea, try adding a fried egg on top of each serving.  It’s delicious.

*Rice is great inside burritos for another meal idea.

*Store any leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3-4 days.
