Picante Beef and Bean Skillet

This is another yummy recipe that we tried new from  It was so good and the kids started eating before Dad got home.  Before I knew it I had to tell the kids to save their Dad some because they were all going back for seconds and thirds.  VERY easy and VERY kid friendly.  Next time I will try to substitute the tortillas for chips, but it was still really yummy with the tortillas.

1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 jar (16 oz) salsa
1 can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
6 flour tortillas (6in), cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cook the beef and onion in a skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring to break up the meat.  Pour off any fat.

Stir in the salsa, beans and tortillas and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling, stirring often.  Top with the cheese.
