Tex-Mex Skillet

I'm from Dallas, TX and definitely a fan of Tex-Mex.

If you're not familiar,Tex-Mex is a type of cuisine that represents the Tejano culture (Texans of Mexican heritage). It is a blend of traditional Mexican food influenced by non traditional Mexican food of Texas. In Tex-Mex dishes you will find a heavy use of shredded cheese, meat, beans (mostly black), canned vegetables, peppers and flour tortillas.

Whether your a fan of Tex-Mex or not, this dish is delicious. It is packed with color, flavor and texture. Give it a try and let me know how much you love it!
