Who loves a one pot meal?! This Cast Iron Skillet Shrimp Spinach Tortilla Stack packs a lot of delicious flavor in one easy one pan recipe.
When I say easy I really mean it. Watch the video below and see for yourself.
This entire recipe came about because I took a stroll through the clearance aisle of my local grocery store. There was a HUGE jug of chunky salsa on sale for less than $4. I usually prefer homemade salsa when were snacking with chips but this was a deal too good to pass up. Pre-made salsa is great to use as a simmering sauce like I did with this recipe for Quick Turkey Chili Loaded Baked Potato
I love a cast iron skillet and this 12 inch one from Lodge is a workhorse in the kitchen. Here’s an affiliate link to a cast iron pan on Amazon
For this Cast Iron Skillet Shrimp Spinach Tortilla Stack
Mix store bought salsa (of course you can make your own if you like) some spinach and shrimp. I layered this in a 12 inch cast iron skillet with flour tortillas and mozzarella cheese and baked it for 30 minutes until it was hot and bubbling. I told you it was easy!
Let the dish cool a bit, then top it with slices of avocado, tomatoes and jalapeño peppers, slice and serve!
You could easily substitute cooked chicken breast, sauteed ground beef or turkey. How would you make this recipe your own? Let me know what you would add in the comments below.
