A Great New Recipe!

It's been a while since I've tried anything new, but the recipe experiment I started a few months ago continues! I found this one yesterday and, since my husband and son (and I) love Mexican food, had to give it a try last night. It was definitely a keeper, and one that will be in my repertoire from now on. Everyone enjoyed it, and said they ate too much because it was just so good!


1 pound lean ground beef
1 package (1 1/4 oz.) taco seasoning mix
1 can (15 1/2 oz.) red kidney beans, drained 
1 cup chunky salsa
1 cup water
4 (6-inch) flour tortillas, cut into 1/2” pieces 
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1 large green onion, chopped 

Brown the ground beef; drain. Stir in the next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer on medium-low heat 5 minutes. Stir in tortilla pieces and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and let stand 5 minutes till the cheese melts. Top with sour cream and onion.

(A Kraft recipe, found at I read a small portion of the 522 online reviews, and they were positive, with some good ideas for making the recipe your own. Thank you, Kraft!) 

Notes: I used black beans instead of kidney beans, and added a cup of frozen corn (thawed). I used Fiesta blend shredded cheese. The only tortillas I had on hand were the large ones, so I only used 4 of them. The sour cream and onion were available on the side, as well as chopped tomatoes and salsa. This recipe made quite a bit for 4 servings. Rice and a few tortilla chips were all that we needed to finish off this meal.
