"One Skillet, No Skill"

That's what the description of the recipe we saw in the Sunday paper said. Michelle noticed the picture and thought it would be a good addition to our menu, and I agreed. I don't have a problem with quick and easy! Once it got on her plate, she was a bit surprised that it wasn't pasta, but it was still delicious. Give it a try; it makes a great "December is a busy month" meal!
Tortilla Skillet

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup water
6 (6") tortillas, cut in 1" pieces
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Brown the ground beef and onion, or make it even more quick and easy and pull a package of wheat/meat from the freezer, thaw it in the microwave for one minute and toss it in the skillet. Stir in the tomato soup (undiluted), salsa and water. Add the tortillas (ours were 8" so I used four; the pizza cutter works great for cutting them into pieces). Heat through, then top with cheese and serve. I also added some sliced olives because they were handy, and served it with a dollop of sour cream.
