Olé! Tortilla chips and salsa put a Mexican spin on a favorite skillet pasta dish. Hamburger Helper® dinner mix makes it easy.
pound lean ground beef
package Hamburger Helper™ cheeseburger macaroni
cups slightly crushed tortilla chips
cups Old El Paso™ salsa (any variety)
cup sour cream
Sliced ripe olives, if desired
Green onion, sliced, if desired
Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.
Stir in hot water, milk, uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hambuger Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and uncover (sauce will thicken as it stands).
Arrange 1 cup tortilla chips on each of 5 serving plates. Spoon about 1 cup beef mixture over tortilla chips on each plate. Top each with 1/4 cup salsa and about 2 tablespoons sour cream. Sprinkle with olives and onions.
Turn this specialty into a taco salad by serving on a bed of shredded or bite-size pieces of lettuce or mixed greens and topping with crushed tortilla chips.
Why not fill taco shells with leftovers? You'll have Taco Salad-Stuffed Tacos! Or wrap extras in flour tortillas for Taco Salad Wraps.
