Cheesy Corn Chip Skillet

This is my adaptation to a recipe that was in the Kraft Food & Family magazine Fall 2010 edition.  This is a quick and easy supper idea that adults and kids alike will enjoy.  Take this basic idea and make it your own by using different seasonings, toppings, or use tortilla chips or broken taco shells instead of the corn chips.  My version made enough for 2 adults.

1/2 lb lean ground beef

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 tbsp taco seasoning

1/3 cup water

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used 1/2 sharp & 1/2 mild.)

20 Fritos Scoops chips


Cook the beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat until there is no pink in the meat.


Add the taco seasoning and water and cook for about 5 minutes or until thickened.  Add the cheese and chips.  Cover and cook on low for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the chips are warm.  Serve plain or with your favorite taco toppings like sour cream, shredded lettuce and salsa.
