Full disclosure #1: I love one-pan dishes. Since you can cook everything in one pan, they HAVE to be easy. And since you only use one real pan, clean up is a breeze.
Full disclosure #2: This is one of my favorite, easy recipes. Its not entirely mine, but what I'm going to share with you is the lightened up version of a Campbell's Kitchen recipe that you can find here.
What you'll need:
- about 1 pound ground beef (I get the leanest beef you can buy)
- 8 whole wheat (read: low carb) tortillas
- 1 cup part skim cheddar cheese
- 1 jar salsa (use your favorite kind)
- 1 10 oz can Light Condensed tomato soup
- 1/2 cup of water
- Franks Hot Sauce.
First, brown the ground beef (or ground white turkey like I used this time).
While that's browning, get out the tortillas and your handy-dandy pizza cutter and cut those tortillas into bite sized squares:
After the beef is browned, pour out any fat and add the water and tomato soup:
Add the salsa...
And the tortilla pieces.
Shake in some Frank's. As much (or as little) as you'd like. I like a lot, but that's just me.
Let those simmer to a boil. Reduce the heat and let everything simmer together for a little while (five minutes-ish).
Once its all simmered, stir in the cheese. Cook until it melts.
|this is the kind of lite cheese that I like to use|
And you're done. Seriously its that easy. And its amazingly delicious.
I like to top with Greek yogurt, but if you feel like living on the edge you can use real sour cream. Or add more cheese. I like to add a few more shakes of Frank's.
Serve it up! This is definitely enough for 4 meals, especially if you have it with some refried beans and a salad like I do. Enjoy!
