Stir fry dishes hold a special place in my heart, because they are how I got started cooking. Long before I got creative with my recipes, my dinner staple was tossing whatever meat and vegetables I had on hand into a pan and going to town. A beef taco skillet stir fry is still my go-to dinner when I’m tired and need something that is fast, healthy, and doesn’t leave a mountain of dishes to wash afterwards.
If there’s one flavor profile that’s quick, easy, and totally-can’t-go-wrong-awesome, taco seasoning just may have to be it. I love me some tacos, but a beef taco skillet is so much easier. And totally just as good. Or at least almost as good, and absolutely worth the taco shell sacrifice in exchange for simplicity.
Low carb one-pan dinners like this beef taco skillet are what you do when you just don’t know what to do, when you don’t feel like cooking, or when it’s 6pm and you realize you have no idea what you’re having for dinner. I practically always have the ingredients for this one on hand. I’ll bet you do, too.
Even if some of the veggies are missing in your fridge, you can easily swap them out with others. I used carrots, peppers, tomatoes, and green onions for my version. Just look at how colorful they are! I’ll bet some caramelized onions would make a yummy addition, too.

If you love low carb taco recipes as much as I do, you’ll want to try some of my other favorites. My healthy taco salad recipe is super easy to make and the whole family will love it! Another delicious one is taco stuffed zucchini boats from Vegetarian Mama. It’s a great option if you need some starchier fillings for other family members, and you can still easily make it low carb by skipping the rice and using meat instead of beans.
No matter what vegetables you choose to use, you still end up with a healthy, low carb, and paleo-friendly meal that is just stupid easy. We all need those sometimes, right? Will you try this beef taco skillet with me?

Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. When it's hot, add olive oil and garlic, and saute about 1 minute, until fragrant.

Reduce heat to medium. Stir the taco seasoning into the ground beef. Add carrots, tomatoes, sweet pepper, and green onions. Season with sea salt to taste.
