What's up Wednesday--burrito skillet

So I have to admit, not a lot of cooking going on here the last 2 weeks.  I was gone a week and with all the crazy of spring and track meets--we haven't had a lot of sit down dinners.  But I did cook one day (ha, ha,) and got a picture of the process, but not the finished product.  This burrito skillet is easy and yummy and a good meal kids can help with.  The tortillas need to be cut into small squares, and my kids are always happy to help with that, and my kids are excellent cheese graters.  A pizza cutter is a good way to cut the tortillas.   Mr J was my helper today.
Burrito Skillet

1 lb hamburger
1 package taco seasoning
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup salsa
1 cup water
4 flour tortillas cut into 1 1/2 in squares
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you like)

Brown meat in large skillet, drain.  Add seasoning mix, beans, salsa and water.  Stir.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 5 minutes.

Stir in tortillas pieces and then top with cheese.  Cover and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Top with sour cream.  

Yum!  Enjoy!
