Sometimes, getting dinner on the table is hard. And sometimes, recipes like this low carb southwestern turkey skillet recipe make life a little easier. Phew!
I can honestly say, that while I love to cook and I love to blog, after almost a full decade of doing so, I definitely have my nights where I’m completely out of inspiration in the kitchen. Nights where the last thing I want to do is think up a new recipe and hope my kid likes it.
On nights like that, I often revert to creating something fast and easy based solely on what I have in the fridge or freezer. No special trips to the store for that one ingredients I don’t have. Just a “what-I-have-is-what-I-use” kind of situation.
Thankfully, this delicious low carb southwestern turkey skillet recipe was the result of exactly that situation. I love these quick and simple one-skillet meals. They offer less clean up and typically, my little guy and I both love the results. There’s a lot to be said for a simple skillet meal…
