Skinny Taco Bake


Holy YUMMM!!! I have an obsession with tacos and I wanted comfort food for dinner. Since I am trying to be good and stick to fresh all natural ingredients, I put my own spin on a taco bake to create a SKINNY taco bake. I went into it saying…this will either be really good or an epic fail. We have chicken nuggets right”? Lol. Well…It was AMAZING. Like really good. And fresh tasting.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
