Recipe: Quick-Fix Beef Burrito Skillet

I tried a new recipe tonight and it was quite good, so thought I would share it with you.
I got the recipe from Their website is full of recipes. I like them because most of the ingredients are in my fridge and pantry anyway and they are usually quick and easy to make. If you sign up for their newsletter, you will get recipes sent to your email on a regular basis. That was how I found this recipe. I made a few subsititions that I have noted below.

Quick-Fix Beef Burrito Skillet
1 lb lean ground beef
1 pkg Taco Bell Home Originals Taco Seasoning Mix
1 Can Kidney Beans, drained, rinsed
1 Cup Taco Bell Home Originals Thick N Chunky Salsa
1 Cup water
4 Flour Tortillas (6 inch), cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
1 Cup Kraft Mexican Style Finely Shredded Four Cheese
1/3 Cup Sour Cream
1/3 Cup green onions
Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat: drain.
Add seasoning mix, beans, salsa, and water; stir. Bring to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat 5 minutes.
Stir in tortillas; top with cheese. Cover; let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and onions.
Note: I substituted the kidney beans for corn that I drained. I also made black beans on the side to add separately for those that like them. I just used half the package of seasoning and used finely shredded cheddar cheese. I did not add the onions.
This was very easy to make and was ready in 20 minutes from start to finish. I think it would also be good with fresh tomatoes and maybe even chips crumbled on top. Enjoy!
