Gloppy Goodness In A Skillet

Every Friday night, we get together as a family and have pizza or some type of casserole. One of our favorite meals we can only describe as gloppy taco in a skillet.

The recipe is from Campbell's soup; it is easy, quick to make and a family favorite. The official name is Beef Taco Skillet and I highly recommend it with a salad!

Here is the recipe (straight from Campbell's):

1 lb. ground beef
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's Tomato Soup
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup water
6 flour tortillas (6"), cut into 1" pieces
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  1. Cook beef in 10" skillet until well browned, stirring to break up meat. Pour off fat.
  2. Stir in soup, salsa, water and tortillas. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes. Stir. Top with cheese. Makes 4 servings.
Whenever we make this at our house, we use crunchy tortilla chips, not the soft ones. This adds a bit of crunch to the dish. We also add in some chopped onions when we brown the beef - adds a bit more flavor too.

You can top this with anything you like to add to tacos - I think that fresh avocado and a little sour cream would be good. However, if you make this straight from the recipe, I don't think that you would be disappointed!
