As a variation of taco night, this one may be my favorite as far as ease of preparation. It was made even easier this time since last time I bought ground beef I cooked and seasoned it and then portioned it into the freezer right away. I like to serve this with a little sour cream and a side of lime flavored tortilla chips
Mexican Tortilla Skillet
1 lb. ground beef
1 clove minced garlic
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/2 c. salsa
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 chopped green pepper (optional)
1. Brown ground beef. Add garlic and taco seasoning and stir.
2. Using a pizza cutter, cut the tortillas into 1 in. squares.
3. Add tomatoes, salsa and tortillas to skillet. Cook about 5 minutes, adding water if it seems to dry. Once heated through, sprinkle cheese on top, turn off heat, and cover until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with green pepper, if using.
