Olé! Tortilla chips and salsa put a Mexican spin on a favorite skillet pasta dish. Hamburger Helper™ dinner mix makes it easy.
Updated Aug 26, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 package Hamburger Helper™ cheeseburger macaroni
  • 5 cups slightly crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 1/4 cups Old El Paso™ salsa (any variety)
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • Sliced ripe olives, if desired
  • Green onion, sliced, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.
  • 2
    Stir in hot water, milk, uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and uncover (sauce will thicken as it stands).
  • 4
    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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Special Touch: 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.
  • tip 2
    Planned-Overs: Why not fill taco shells with leftovers? You'll have Taco Salad-Stuffed Tacos! Or wrap extras in flour tortillas for Taco Salad Wraps.
