Beef Taco Frito Skillet
"Just happened to come across a recipe in a magazine. I read it and decided to "renovate" it and this is my finished keeper. A versatile recipe, adjust the heat, even put it in the oven with cheese. I just do it all in the skillet on the top of the stove."
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup, undiluted
- 1/2 cup salsa (any heat)
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 cups Frito's corn chips, slightly broken
- 1 cup cheese, Mexican blend
- 1 (4 ounce) can green chilies
- 2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
