This month’s Recipe Redux theme is one of my favorites: Taco Tuesday.
I could eat tacos and other Mexican-themed meals every night of the week. The savory flavors of taco night are addictive. This is the one food genre that everyone in my family can agree on. There are no complaints in my house at dinnertime on taco night.
This Mexican frittata recipe is so easy to make, and the flavor is amazing. It was inspired by these taco muffins from Food Faith Fitness that I made a few weeks ago. My family enjoyed them, but we were still hungry at the end of the meal. I wanted to make them a little heartier with the addition of some veggies. And as cute as the muffins were, I thought the process would be a bit simpler in a frittata.
I use a cast iron skillet to make this ground beef Mexican frittata. Be sure to grease the skillet very well if it isn’t completely seasoned. Eggs tend to stick more than other ingredients, so it will be difficult to remove the frittata from the skillet if it isn’t well-greased.
It’s easiest to cut this frittata if you let it sit for about 10 minutes before cutting. If you try to cut it right away, it will be hard to get clean slices.
You can skip the cheese if you’re avoiding dairy. This Mexican frittata is still very flavorful even without the cheese. Another great option is my dairy-free frittata recipe.
This crustless taco pie is another easy, delicious variation on taco night.
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 2 tsp taco seasoning
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 small green pepper chopped
- 1/3 lb plum tomatoes sliced
- 3 scallions chopped
- 8 eggs scrambled
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- In a medium oven-safe skillet (8 to 9 inches wide), brown the ground beef in the olive oil. Add the taco seasoning and salsa. Stir to coat evenly, then remove the seasoned meat from the skillet.
- Add the green pepper to the skillet and cook for a few minutes, until crisp tender. Add the meat back to the skillet, along with the tomato and scallions. Pour the scrambled eggs on top, and sprinkle with the salt and cheese.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the frittata is set and no longer jiggly. Let it sit for a few minutes before cutting. Serve warm.
