Quick Beef Burrito Skillet

Amigo and I visited our favorite diner for lunch yesterday. For the first time, we ordered almost exactly the same thing: the Mexican skillet. Both of us had hash browns & wheat toast. The only difference - he had his eggs scrambled, and mine were over easy.

That got me thinking. We must be able to make a similar brunch dish at home. I dug into my recipe files, and sure enough, I found one. I haven't made this yet, but it looks easy and delicious. Home made salsa will add an extra homey touch.

Quick Beef Burrito Skillet
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 can (19 oz.) kidney beans, drained, rinsed
1 cup salsa
1 cup water
4 flour tortillas 6 inch size), cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
1 cup cheese - Mexican style, if you have it
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup chopped green onions

Brown and drain beef.
Add seasoning mix, salsa, water, and beans. Bring to a boil. Simmer for five minutes.
Stir in tortillas. Top with cheese. Cover. Let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Top with sour cream and onions.

Other ideas? Readers, what else could I add - or subtract? I do like things simple, especially on school nights.
