- Salsa, beans, cheese, chilies, you have all these incredible flavors all packed into one little pan. I have reinvented taco night and made it a whole lot more family style. Let's build our taco skillet. I love making these for parties because they're really easy to throw together. It feeds a big crowd. So all your gonna do is on each tortilla you're just gonna spread your refried beans, you're gonna put some salsa in there. These are all classic Mexican flavors that a lotta people love. So you just can't go wrong here. And some mozzarella cheese. And all you're gonna do is you kind of roll up like a jelly roll. And now we're gonna just cut it into four little pieces. Gonna cut off the ends just so that they stand up nice and tall. Cut it right in the center kinda like you would a sushi roll, and then one and one. So take these guys and just all in your skillet. So pretty! These are just really fun for everyone to just grab their own. It makes a really fun presentation. Let's keep building these. Alright, we're getting these nice, tucked in here. I love it when it's done in a really rustic looking skillet like this 'cause you can bring this right to the table, and it makes for an awesome presentation. You got your jalapenos here. Obviously if you don't like spice you could just omit it or do a little bit less, but I like these really nice and spicy. We're gonna top it off with some more salsa. Just to get it nice and saucy and as it cooks that sauce kind of drips in between all the little crevices there. And with the salsa also you can go mild, you can go spicy, totally up to you. You got some green chili peppers here. There's so many layers. We're just building layers and layers of flavor here. And we're gonna top it all off with some more cheese because you can't go wrong with more cheese. Alright, this is already to go in the oven. 400 degrees for about 35 minutes, until the cheese is oozing all over the place and, oh my God, I'm just getting really excited. Let's go! It smells like cheese heaven here. This looks so good! This is how you wanna serve it. You wanna bring it right to your table and put it right on your plate, and get it out there. Oh snap! A nice hearty family meal. You could do this for a party, Cinco de Mayo, you name it. It works for so many different things. So easy to put together. I just finish it off with some nice fresh cilantro. You guys gotta try this. This has such good flavors. It has that heat, the cheese. So simple to throw together. It's like a no-brainer. You gotta try this one out. Hope you love it.
