Barbacoa Beef and Egg Skillet Bake

When I do meal planning every week, there are a couple fixed dishes that are always on the menu. Slow cooker barbacoa beef and pico de gallo are two of these dishes.

Normally, the first barbacoa meal is tacos. With pico on hand, that makes things super easy and tasty. From there, Han makes quesadillas and I make noodle bowls. All from the same batch of barbacoa beef.

Today’s recipe is a special one. We added eggs and cheese, then bake them with the leftover barbacoa beef. It literally takes no time to prepare but the result is glorious.
