It couldn't be easier to make this family-friendly dinner...all you need is 20 minutes, a skillet, and six on-hand ingredients.


cost per recipe: $7.37

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce or Mild Chunky Salsa
  • 8 corn tortilla (6-inch), cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion (optional)


  • Step 1

    Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir the picante sauce, tortillas and half of the cheese in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the beef mixture is hot and bubbling.

  • Step 3

    Top with the remaining cheese. Serve with the sour cream and green onion, if desired.

  • So easy to make!

    February 19, 2014

    This recipe was so easy to make and it was delicious. Even my picky 2 and a half year old loved it. Instead of mixing the tortillas in we baked them and served the other ingredients on top of them. I will definitely be making this again.

  • Chewy Tortilas

    January 16, 2013

    This recipe was easy, and had nice flavors - but the finished meal felt and tasted unfinished. I used the amount suggested of tortillas but they were WAY too much. Very chewy, with not much flavor. It worked, but probably won't make it again.

  • So fast and so easy

    I had everything except the green onions but that wasn't a problem. After a long day at work it was fast, easy, tastey and only one pan was dirty!

    My 12 year old son was looking for a recipe he could make on his own, and this fit the bill. His dad and I both liked it a lot and he even cleaned his plate. He will be making it again soon. He added frozen corn and we topped the dish with tortilla chips and extra cheese.
