Skillet Nachos

My mom gave me a fundraiser cookbook, and this is the recipe I’ve used most. My whole family is on board. For toppings, think sour cream, tomatoes, jalapeno and red onion. —Judy Hughes, Waverly, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn, thawed
  • 3/4 cup uncooked instant rice
  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 package (16 ounces) tortilla chips
  • Optional toppings: Sour cream, sliced fresh jalapenos, shredded lettuce and lime wedges

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 6-8 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in tomatoes, corn, rice, water, taco seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until rice is tender and mixture is slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese. Let stand, covered, until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Divide tortilla chips among 6 plates; spoon beef mixture over chips. Serve with toppings as desired.
