A note about serious food allergies

We all have those nights where we don't want our dinner fussy; we just want our dinner tasty. This skillet is all about bringing you ample flavor without you having to spend hours slaving over a hot stove. A feisty pico de gallo with fresh tomatoes and poblano pepper tops a meaty mix of bell pepper, more poblano, seasoned beef, and melty cheese. Fancy doesn't equal flavor, but this meal surely does.
