Beef Taco Skillet

Anyone interested in a SUPER easy, SUPER yummy dinner? Well, then this is what you have been looking for! (I found this recipe in one of the mailers from the grocery store.)

Pam Cooking Spray
4 corn tortillas (6 inch), torn into bite-size pieces
8 ounces lean ground beef
1 can Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, drained
1/4 cup frozen whole kernel corn
3/4 cup undrained Ranch Style Beans
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
Sour cream, optional

Spray large skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Place tortilla pieces in skillet. Cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet.

Cook ground beef in skillet until no longer pink; drain. Stir in drained tomatoes, corn and beans. Bring to a boil. Simmer 2 minutes or until hot.

Add tortilla pieces and stir to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Cover. Let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

As a side note: I used can corn instead of frozen (frozen tastes weird to me). Also, don't drain the corn or Rotel all the way to keep it from getting dry. Also, I buy my beef by the pound. So, I just threw it all in there.

 I am definitely working this into my dinner rotation!! It has tons of flavor!! My favorite part, the tortillas pieces!!  The only negative, this dish has a little too much "kick" for a little one!
