Beef Taco Skillet

Have you ever made a recipe and really liked it, but then forgot about it? Well, that's exactly what happened with this recipe for Beef Taco Skillet. Probably about 4 or 5 years ago I came across this recipe on the back of the Cambell's Tomato Soup label. I made it several times and then somehow forgot all about it. Then, a few days ago it was the featured recipe on the allrecipes website. I was so excited when I realized what it was. I had some leftover tortilla shells calling out to be made into this tasty and versatile dish. I have made it before and added an envelope of taco seasoning. That was great, but we really like it as is. It can also be spiced up by using a hotter salsa. We use mild at our house to make it kid friendly. I also like this dish because it's only about $1.25 per serving. Enjoy :)

1 pound ground beef
1 can Condensed Tomato Soup
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup water
6 (6 inch) flour tortillas, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped onion

Cook beef in skillet until well browned, stirring to break up meat. Pour off fat.
Stir in soup, salsa, water, tortillas. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes Stir. Top with cheese.

I really want to make this, but it ask for salsa and doesn't give any specifics on what type. Can you let me know what kind of salsa to use? Thank you.

You can use 1/2 cup of any jarred salsa or homemade salsa that you enjoy. I used Pace mild for this recipe because my husband likes mild.
