Ingredients

cost per recipe: $6.81

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato SoupRegular or Healthy Request® or Classic Tomato Soup
  • 0.5 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 flour tortilla (6-inch), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)

Instructions

  • Tips

    • For Creamy Mexican Fiesta Skillet, stir in 1/2 cup sour cream with the soup.
    • For Ranchero-Style Skillet, use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas and shredded Mexican cheese blend instead of Cheddar.
    • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Prepare the beef mixture as directed but do not top with the cheese (you’ll use it after reheating). Cool completely.  Spoon the cooled mixture into a gallon-size resealable freezer bag.  Seal bag (removing air) and freeze (you can freeze the remaining cheese, too, in a resealable freezer bag).  Cook frozen or thawed mixture in a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat until hot (you may need to add ¼ cup water if heating from frozen) and stirring occasionally.  Top with the cheese.
  • Step 1

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

  • Step 2

    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.

    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.

    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.
