Stir the soup, picante sauce, water and tortillas in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir the beef mixture. Top with the cheese.
This recipe needs a little improvement.
I thought this recipe needed a little extra zip to it. I added a tablespoon of chili powder to it. It was ok but when I saw the review with adding an envelope of taco seasoning I thought to myself: Why didn't I think of that. That is what I will do the next time.
Quick, easy and a guaranteed win.
This recipe is worth adding to your top ten rotation. It's easy to pull the ingredients out of the pantry and put a meal on the table in less than 20 min including doing the dishes!
It is also a good way to use up leftover tortillas.
beef taco skillet
I make this all of the time, and we love it. I use very 96% lean beef and I crush tortilla chips in the mix and simmer.
IT NEEDS A LOT OF HELP
THIS IS SO BLAND i HAD TO ADD SOME TACO POWDER AND CUMIN SO IT DIDN'T JUST TASTE LIKE TOMATO HAMBURGER SOUP WITH SOGGY CROUTONS
I used ground turkey and added a taco seasoning packet. So delicious. Very quick and painless to make. Next time I will throw in a can of black beans and corn.
