Quick-Fix Beef Burrito Skillet

This is a newer favorite in our house. I got it from the Kraft Food and Family Magazine. I love getting that magazine every couple of months, it usually has some good stuff. It's free, and if you want one you can go to kraftfoods.com This dish is like Burritos, but easier for the younger kids to eat. You can make it mild or spicy depending on what kind of salsa and toppings you use. We serve it with a salad, and sometimes tortilla chips for scooping!

1 lb Lean ground beef
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 (19oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup salsa
1 cup water
4 flour tortillas (6 in.) cut into 1 1/2-inch squares
1 cup shredded cheese, cheddar or mexican blend
1/3 cup sour cream - optional.
1/3 cup chopped green onions (about 1 large) - optional.
Tortilla chips for scooping - optional.

Brown meat, drain. Add seasoning mix, beans, salsa, and water, stir. Bring to Boil. Reduce heat to medium low, simmer 5 min. Stir in tortillas, top with cheese. Cover and let stand 5 min. or until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and onions if you like. Other toppings could be shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, or jalapenos.
