Taco Skillet

1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 cup Salsa
1/2 cup water
8 flour tortillas (6"), cut into 1" pieces
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Mix meat, tomato sauce, salsa, water, tortillas and half the cheese. Heat to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat 5 min. or until hot. Top with remaining cheese.

Source: this is my adaptation of a Campbell's recipe. I'd add 1/2 cup of frozen corn if Big DS wasn't so against it!

DINNER KIT: This is a great recipe to make when you have 15 minutes or less to get dinner on the table. Just have the ground beef cooked and drained ahead of time. I brown 3 or 4 pounds at a time and freeze it in 2-cup bags; that amount is perfect for this recipe. Mix the ground beef with salsa, tomato sauce, water and 1/4 of the cheese. Refrigerate until needed. Also, cut up the tortillas ahead of time so they're ready to add in. When it's time to cook, just stir the tortillas into the meat mixture, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Add remaining cheese and serve.
