Mexican Tortilla Skillet

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
6 tortillas
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.
