How to Make MmmmMmmm!Texas Beef Skillet


  1. In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion till beef is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat.
  2. Sprinkle meat mixture with chili powder, salt, and garlic salt. Stir in undrained tomatoes, undrained beans, uncooked rice, water, and green pepper.
  3. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Top with cheese and cover again for about 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle the corn chips around the skillets side in a circle keeping the middle without chips. ( just looks better ) Serve hot.
  4. I never had left overs so I don't know how this keeps. Can make ahead and freeze and add the cheese and chips after cooked.
