Inside-Out Tacos

On the extra busy nights, I want to whip together a dinner that doesn’t require chopping.  Dicing.  Or peeling.

I just want to throw it all together and have it magically turn out hearty and delicious.  I couldn’t care less about whether or not it looks pretty.

That’s why this is one of my favorite go-to dishes for busy week-nights.  There are six ingredients that you throw together into a skillet, and you end up with a quick, tasty dinner that even a picky husband will love.

Inside-Out Taco’s

–1 lb lean ground beef

–1 can (10 3/4 oz ounces) Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup

— 1/2 cup black bean salsa (I highly recommend using Newman’s Own blackbean and corn salsa.  I’ve tried other brands and this salsa really tastes the best)

–1/2 cup water

–6 whole wheat flour tortillas (6-inch), cut into 1 inch strips

— 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed (or run hot water over the corn ’till it’s thawed)

— 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Cook the beef in a large skillet until it’s cooked through.  (Pour off any fat).  Stir in the soup, salsa, water, and corn and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and let simmer for 4-5 minutes.  Add the tortilla’s and let simmer for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Top with the shredded cheese and serve once cheese is melted.

Enjoy!!  🙂
