I have about a dozen recipes that are in draft form. Some of them are seasonal, like Valentine cut-out cookies that I probably made right after all the lovey-dovey hoopla, so ended up skipping the post. I have another partial recipe featuring my blueberry bites. I wasn’t happy with the photos, so it continues to sit in the draft bin.
I laughed when I saw this post. I opened the link and saw that I wrote, “I don’t know what to say about this, IT’S LEFTOVERS.” Haha! It’s true. This Tex-Mex Skillet recipe is a quick meal that can be made with leftovers.
No holding back on this creation any longer! This is a great dish when you want something filling and quick! You can have this on your table in 30 minutes.
Tex-Mex Skillet Recipe
- 2 -3 Teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 1 lb ground beef, turkey or chicken
- 3 Tablespoons taco seasoning
- 1 can (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes
- 2/3 cup water
- 2 medium sized zucchini, diced
- 1 medium left over corn
- 2 cups cooked rice
- mozzarella cheese
Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix recipe is here.
A few dashes of hot sauce like Tapatio adds more heat and flavor. An icy cold beer would compliment this dish as well. Give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by!

I super love scrappy dishes like this. I make things ALL THE TIME with crazy leftovers and old vegetables I forgot were in the drawer. This is a good one! I think i might bounce offa this and make some yummy nachos. MMMMMMmmmmm.
Oh, yes! Nachos…add lots of cheese!!
Your little tex mex skillet recipe looks hearty enough for a cowboy.
Know what you mean by uncompleted recipes sitting in the draft bin.
Every culture has recipes to turn precooked (leftover) rice into a totally different and delicious dish.
I have a couple of posts that I just need to trash! Yes, as I was writing this recipe, I was thinking about the similarities with fried rice!
